TT is a laudable part of human nature to desiie to know 
-*- as much as is possible of its Ancestr}', in order to 
contemplate the various forms of religion and govern- 
ment, and their civilizing influences. It is paradoxical 
that any religion should ever ha\e been vindictive ; rob- 
bing, torturing and murderiiig (for the glorv of (jod 
and the salvation of souls) all who would not conform 
to their bigoted and tyrannical ideas of religious dutv. 

But amidst all these persecutions there have been a few 
noble and fearless people who adopted the motto that''' re- 
sistance to tyrants was obedience to God,'" thereby planting 
the good seed which has grown by slow and sure growth, 
developing the ti'uest and best theocracy and democracy. 

It is always interesting and j^i'ofitable to read the say- 
ings and doings of good, noble, independent people, who 
have battled heroically against wrong in all ages and who 
have been martyrs for truth's sake. 

It is a sad and dark picture to contemplate the iiistory 
of the Puritans^ who fled from persecutions only to be- 
come worse persecutors in turn ; leaving homes and 
kindred, coming to this then wilderness country to 
enjoy religious liberty, and by their dishonest practices 
with the Indians incurring not only their contempt but 
their hatred and vengeance. It is said the Piuitans were 
continuallv in danger of the tomahawk of the Indian 


here, and the perfidy of a corrupt and profligate Court in 
Enghmd. The Indians were not long in discovering the 
want of good faith and common honesty practised by the 
Puritans, hence their hostility, which was dreadful in the 
pious Puritans' eyes. How different was the example of 
William Penn, wdio founded a colony and dealt honestly 
with the Indians, and whose treaty with them, as 
Voltaire says, "was the only treaty ever made which 
was not sworn to, and the only treaty which was ever 
sacredly observed." 

In the course of thirtv-five years after the landing of 
the Pilgrims in 1620, there came to these shores a peace- 
loving people called Friends or Qiiakers, who were a 
sober, industrious, thrifty, truth-loving people, who soon 
came under the terrible scourge of these intolerant Puri- 
tans, and were whipped, imprisoned, lined, banished and 
hung for having the audacity to love and embrace the 
truth as taught by George Fox. 

It is said that the blood of the martyrs was the seed of 
the Church, so of the noble martyrs who shed their blood 
in the cause of truth and honest religion, and who have 
taught bigots in religion that honesiy is the onl}' t?'2ie 
basis for any religion, and have produced a public senti- 
ment which has broken the chains of the slave and has 
taught people the simple lesson that in order to have 
your 1-ights respected you 7>iust respect the rights of 

In noble contrast with Governor John Endicott, of 
Massachusetts, stands William Penn, who founded a 
Colony on the principle of equal and exact justice to all, 
white, red and black ; he tolerated and respected all 
religious opinions, and would not take the large sum of 
$80,000 due his father. Admiral William Penn, from 
the English government, because it was earned in War., 


but took in lieu a deed of Pennsylvania, and then came 
over and told the Indians that although he had a deed of 
their lands he did not consider that he owned a foot of it. 
For seventy years no white person was killed in Pennsyl- 
vania by the Indians, and they did not carry^ weapons of 

There is a tradition that the Qiiaker garb is a pass- 
port of safety to the wearer to this day amongst the 
Indians on our Continent. 

Lord Baltimore, a Roman Catholic, founded a colony 
where all religions could be enjoyed without molestation. 
Roger Williams, a Baptist, founded a colon v where all 
religious opinions were protected. 

That nobility which prefers Right to Power is the truest 
Aristocracy of the world.

Setting forth reasons atid causes for separating a7id dissentittg 
from the Established Church of the old Colony of Massachu- 
setts Bay by the Quakers in 1656. 

'HEN from a clear conviction of our inherent 
rights and duties as conscientious and humble 
followers of that noble man George Fox, the 
apostle of peace and good-will on earth ; who 
dared brave the corruptions of a venal, corrupt and 
tyrannical church and boldly proclaim those eternal 
principles of truth and right which were clearly in 
accord with the best teachings of the Bible; we feel 
that it would be just to set forth the reasons for leav- 
ing a church which was the right hand of political 
power and was a power behind the throne greater 
than the throne, hence Church and State — church 
first, which sought to crush and destroy all independ- 
ence in Church or State. 

"We deem our salvation to be an individual work 
which we cannot do by proxy or for another. 

"We deem it proper to eat our bread by the sweat 
of our brows. 


"We deem it proper to wear the yoke of self-de- 
nial, and inculcate by our practice as well as by our 
precepts our friendship for all our fellow-creatures, 
as we are all God's children. 

"We deem it proper to beat our swords into plough- 
shares and our spears into pruning-hooks, and to re- 
fuse to participate in any and all wars against our fel- 

"We deem it proper to declare and proclaim to all 
the world our abhorrence of all wars, and our inde- 
pendence of all despotic rulers, either spiritual or temp- 

"We deem it our duty to have all our children and 

all children under our care educated sufficiently to 
read and write, in order that all persons at mature age 
may be able to read and interpret the Scriptures for 
themselves, in order that the ligJit ivitliin may direct 
aright. "Ask and it shall be given you : seek and ye 
shall find : knock and it shall be opened unto you." — 
Matt. VII, 7. 

"While we recognize our Duty towards our God, 
we utterly refuse to bow the head to any earthly po- 
tentate, for we cannot serve two masters. 

"We deem it proper to declare and protest against 
the cruel and vindictive persecutions of our (so- 
called) Christian Church, and we proclaim our inde- 
pendence of the same, and we recognize the true 
brotherhood of man. 

"The seeds thus sown brought forth a class of 
sturdy independent thinkers who were the men who 
boldly declared for the Independence of our Conntry 
in 1776." 


From South Coast Saunterings in England. 

'T^HERE was printed in the county of Hampshire 
a curious "Annual Repository," two vokimes of 
which I have been enabled, through the kindness of 
a friend, to examine. These are records of the agri- 
cultural, social and religious condition of the various 
parishes in the county and many entertaining accounts 
of their antiquities. Of the latter, I was struck with 
the form of a conveyance by Henry I. (A. D. 1133) 
of land to Southwick Priory: "I will and firmly de- 
cree that the said canons, their officers and servants, 
shall have and hold all their possessions .... free 
and unmolested from shires and hundreds and all 
manner of suits, pleas and complaints and payments 
for murders and larcenies, from homsuchen and forest 
law, from scutage and hidage, gelds, denegelds and 
homgelds, assorts, assizes, dodande, saides, sum- 
mages, avepenny and hundred-penny, miskinnings 
and blodewyte." — M. D. Conway, Harper s MontJily, 
Vol. jp, page 344. 

Sewel's History of the Quakers. 

In 1657, William Shattuck, a shoe maker of Bos- 
ton, being on the first day of the week found at his 


house instead of coming to the place of worship was 
taken to the house of correction, where at his first 
entrance he was cruelly whipped and then kept at 
work whilst his wife and innocent children were in 
want on account of his absence. Richard Bellingham, 
Deputy Governor, said to William's wife that since he 
was poor and could not pay five shillings per week 
for not coming to church they should keep him in 

John Copeland and Christopher Holder coming to 
Dedham were taken by the Constable to Boston, 
when being brought before the Governor, John Endi- 
cott, lie said in a rage "ye shall be sure to have your 
ears cut off." Soon after, John Rouse came to Boston 
and was arrested and put into prison. Then Governor 
Endicott called the three prisoners by name and said 
in a great passion, it is the sentence of the Court that 
you three have each of you his right ear cut off by 
the hangman. The sentence ^vas executed in private. 

In 1658, Sarah Gibbons and Dorothy Waugh came 
to Boston, and having spoken in the public meeting- 
place, were brought to the house of correction, and 
three days before and three days after being whipped 
were not allowed to have victuals, although they 
offered to pay for them ; and when Sarah afterwards 
asked Governor Endicott whether this was justice 
and equity, he answered that it mattered not. 

Not long after, Hored Gardner, an inhabitant of 
Rhode Island, came with her sucking babe and a girl 
to carry it to Weymouth. Being a Qnaker she was 
hurried to Boston, where both she and the girl were 


whipped with a three-fold knotted whip. Hored after 
being whipped knelt down and prayed the Lord to 
forgive their persecutors. 

Daniel and Provided Southwick, son and daughter 
of Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick, seeing how 
unreasonably their honest parents and brother Josiah 
were dealt with, felt themselves encouraged to follow 
their steps and not frequent the assemblies of such a 
persecuting generation ; for which absence they were 
fined ten pounds, though it was well known they had 
no estate. To get this money an order was issued 
in the General Court at Boston that they should be 
sold as slaves to any of the English nation at Virginia 
or Barbadoes to answer said fines. 

Rev. John Selby Watson's Life of George Fox. 

In 1656 two women, Mary Fisher and Ann Austin, 
came to Boston to preach as humble followers of 
George Fox. There had been no law made against 
Quakers in New England, yet Richard Billingham, 
the Deputy Governor, committed these two women to 
prison on their landing, as being of the sect called 
Quakers, because one of them in speaking to him 
said '' tJion" instead of ''yon!' They were afterwards 
barbarously treated ; they were undressed and searched 
on pretence of ascertaining whether they were 

They were kept in confinement five weeks and al- 
most starved ; and at last the captain of a vessel was 
forced to carry them back to England, and the jailor 


kept their beds, which had been brought on shore, 
for jail fees : such was the '" cntcrtainvicnf the Quak- 
ers first met with at Boston from a people who pre- 
tended that for conscience sake they chose the wilds 
of America rather than the well-cultivated Old Eng- 

Four male and four female " Quakers'' who landed 
about a month afterwards were treated in a similar 
manner by Governor Endicott, and after eleven weeks 
stay were shipped back to England. 

Cassandra Southwick was arrested July, 1656, for 
absence from worship. 

A law was then made prohibiting all masters of 
ships from bringing " Quakers " to New England and 
" Quakers'' themselves from landing there under pen- 
alty of imprisonment. 

Quakers, however, still continued to appear in New 
England, and most cruel measures were adopted for 
their exclusion. At length two " Quakers," William 
Robinson, a London trader, and Marmaduke Steven- 
son, an agriculturist from Yorkshire, both of whom 
persisted in frequenting Boston and the neighbor- 
hood, were ordered by the court to keep themselves 
out of its jurisdiction '' uuder paiu of deaths and as 
they did not feel "free in mind" to obey the order, 
were in the latter part of the year 1659 actually 
hanged, and their dead bodies were stripped and 
mangled by the hands of the mob. A woman named 
Mary Dyer was executed soon afterwards. 

And in the early part of the following year William 
Leddra and Wenlock Christison were also hung for 
same reasons. 


But these proceedings, which far surpassed any- 
thing that had been done against the ''Quakers'' in 
England, excited the attention of the Enghsh people 
as well as the " Quakers" themselves, and an applica- 
tion being made to the King, Charles II, a mandamus 
was addressed by the English government to the au- 
thorities of New England, directing that if there were 
any ''Quakers" in that country under sentence of 
imprisonment, corporeal punishment or death, the 
proceedings against them should be stopped and they 
should be sent over to England to be dealt with ac- 
cording to English laws. 

This order was so far obeyed that the "Quakers" 
who were then in prison were set at liberty, and three 
deputies. Colonel Temple, a priest named Norton, 
and Simon Broadstreet, one of the magistrates, were 
sent over to England to inform the King of their re- 
lease and to deprecate his displeasure. 

During their stay in England George Fox and some 
of his friends found an opportunity of speaking to 
them and charged them boldly, at least Norton and 
Broadstreet (who acknowledged that they were con- 
cerned in the persecutions), with murder, in having, 
though subjects of England, put to death peaceable 
citizens, not by English laws, but by arbitrary enact- 
ments of their own ; and many of the old Royalists 
says " Sezuel" were earnest with the "Quakers" to 
bring the New England persecutors or as many of 
them as possible to trial, but George Fox replied 
that he would leave them to Him to whom vengeance 
belonged, and consequently nothing was done in the 


It does not appear that any more " Quakers'' were 
put to death in New England, but persecutions were 
not discontinued and ill-treatment of them by whip- 
ping, imprisonment, and other modes of vexation 
were indulcred to a great extent. 

Bishop's New England Judged. 

In 1657, Lawrence Southwick and Cassandra his 
wife, an aged and grave couple, inhabitants of Salem, 
Mass., and members of First church, who for enter- 
taining two strangers, viz. : John Copeland and Chris- 
topher Holder, were committed to prison at Boston. 
Lawrence was released as being a member of First 
church, to be dealt with by said congregation ; but 
Cassandra was kept in prison seven weeks and then 
fined forty shillings for owning a paper written by the 
two aforesaid strangers in reference to the truth and 
the Scriptures. Gov. Endicott putting questions to 
her to ensnare her and bring her under the law, which 
was illegal, said law being enacted to punish any 
person who should write or hold any heretical papers, 
said papers were not proved to be heretical but were 
the truth. 

In the 5th Month, 16, 1658, Old Style, Lawrence. 
Cassandra and their son Josiah were imprisoned at 
Boston for being Quakers, and were kept there twenty 
weeks on a charge of violating a law enacted while 
they were in prison.

First Settlers of New England. 

1658 and 1659. In the dark days of delusion 
against the Quakers the whole family of Lawrence 
and Cassandra Southwick suffer much from fines and 
imprisonment. When the fines of Daniel and Pro- 
vided were unpaid, the tender hearted General Court 
with intent to magnify the GLORY OF GOD ordered 
them to be sold for Slaves to any Christian in Vir- 
ginia or Barbadoes. 

Lawrence made his will at Shelter Island in 1659 
and died there three days before his wife, in spring 
of 1660; his will was proved at Salem in 1660, in 
which he mentions sons John, Josiah and Daniel, and 
daughters Provided and Mary (who married Henry 
Trask), and some grand children.

In March, 1658, John Small, Josiah Southwick and 
John Burton are apprehended in Dedham for being

itations, one of us about 8 months, the other 10 
months ; and where we are yet continued by yon 
oppressors, yet know no Shame." 

March 6, 1661. Of several things for which a fast 
is observed by the church in Salem is renewal of 
covenant and adding to it as follows : "Therefore we 
do covenant by the help of Jesus Christ to take heed 
and beware of the leaven of the doctrine of the 

* How absurdly false this pretence is, for the Qiiakers did 
not have any Doctrine or Code of Faith and Belief. They simply 
by their discipline enjoined the reading of the Bible ; and each to 
interpret for themselves, that the light xvithin each and every 
person was sufficient to guide them aright, " that he who runs

what course may be taken for ye dissolueing ye 
Quaker Meetings here which we have frequent and 
constant without interruption a long time, strange 
Quakers often repairing hither, y^ occasion may be

THE Massachusetts Bay of New England. 

Oct. 14, 1656. Whereas there is a cursed sect 
of heretics lately risen up in the world, which are 
commonly called Quakers ; who take upon them to 
be immediately sent of God, and infallibly assisted by 
the spirit to speak and write blasphemous opin- 
ions, despising government and the order of God in 


church and commonwealth, speaking evil of digni- 
ties and reproaching and reviling magistrates and 
ministers, seeking to turn the people from the faith 
and gain proselytes to their pernicious ways. This 
Court taking into serious consideration the premises, 
and to prevent the like mischief as by their means 
is wrought in our native land, doth hereby order, and 
by the authority of this court be it ordered and enacted 
that what master of any ship, bark, pinnace, catch, 
or of any other vessel that shall henceforth bring into 
any harbor, creek or cove within this jurisdiction any 
known Quaker, or any other blasphemous heretics as 
aforesaid, shall pay or cause to be paid, a fine of one 
Hundred Pounds, to the treasurer of the country; 
except it appear that he wanted true knowledge or 
information of their being such, and in that case he 
hath liberty to clear himself by his oath, when suffi- 
cient proof to the contrary is wanting ; and for de- 
fault of payment or good security for it, shall be 
committed to prison and there remain till the said 
sum be satisfied to the treasurer as aforesaid ; and 
the commander of any such ship or vessel that shall 
bring them, being legally convicted, shall give in 
sufficient security to the Governor or any one or 
more of the magistrates who have power to deter- 
mine the same, to carry them back to the place from 
whence he brought them, and on his refusal to do so 
the Governor or one or more of the magistrates are 
hereby empowered to issue out his or their warrants to 
commit such master or commander to prison, there to 
continue until he shall give sufficient security to the 


content of the Governor or any of the magistrates as 
aforesaid, and it is hereby ordered and enacted that 
what Quakers soever shall arise in this country from 
foreign parts or come into this jurisdiction from any 
parts adjacent, shall forthwith be committed to the 
house of correction, and at their entrance to be se- 
verely whipt, and by the master thereof to be kept 
constantly at work and none suffered to converse or 
speak with them during the time of their imprison- 
ment, which shall be no longer than necessity re- 
quireth ; and further it is ordered if any person shall 
knowingly import into any harbor of this jurisdiction 
any Quaker books or writings concerning their Devil- 
ish opinions, shall pay for every such book or writ- 
ings, being legally proved against him or them, the 
sum of five pounds ; and whoever shall disperse or 
conceal any such book or writings and it be found 
with him or her or in his or her house, and shall not 
immediately deliver into the next magistrate, shall 
forfeit and pay the sum of five pounds for the dis- 
persing or concealing of any such book or writing. 

And it is hereby further enacted that if any person 
within this colony take upon them the hereti- 
cal opinions of the said Quakers, or any of their 
books or papers as aforesaid, ''ex animo,'" if legally 
proved shall be fined for the first time forty shillings, 
and if they shall persist in the same and shall so 
again defend it, the second time four pounds ; if still 
notwithstanding they shall again so defend and main- 
tain the said Quakers' heretical opinions, they shall 
be committed to the house of correction till there be 


convenient passage to send them out of the land, be- 
ing sentenced by the Court of assistance to banish- 
ment. Lastl}\ it is hereby ordered that what person 
or persons soever shall revile the office or person of 
magistrates or ministers, as is usual with the Qtiakers, 
such person or persons shall be severely whipt, or pay 
the sum of five pounds. 

Oct. 15, 1656. (Page 279.) It is ordered that 
the secretary forthwith issue out a warrant from this 
Court to the Marshall General or his deputy, to im- 
press a meet boat and sufficient and convenient help 
to carry down and deliver the Qtiakers aboard Mr. 

Oct. 14, 1657. (Page 308.) As, in addition to the 
late order in reference to the coming or bringing in 
any of the cursed sect of the Quakers into this juris- 
diction, it is ordered that whosoever shall from hence- 
forth bring or cause to be brought directly or indi- 
rectly any known Quaker or Qiiakers or other blas- 
phemous Heretics into this jurisdiction, every such 
person shall forfeit the sum of one hundred pounds 
to the countr}', and shall by warrant be committed to 
prison and there remain until the penalty be satisfied 
and paid ; and if any person or persons within this 
jurisdiction shall entertain any Qtiaker or Qtiakers or 
other blasphemous heretics, shall forfeit forty shillings 
for every hours' entertainment and concealment, and 
shall be committed to prison until the fine is paid : 
and it is further ordered that if any Qtiaker or Quak- 
ers, after they have once suffered what the law re- 
quireth, come into this jurisdiction, every such male 



Qtiaker shall for the first offence have one of his ears 
cut off and be kept at work in the house of correc- 
tion till he can be sent away at his charge, and for 
the second offence have his other ear cut off, and kept 
at house of correction as aforesaid. And every woman 
Quaker that hath suffered the law here that shall pre- 
sume to come into this jurisdiction shall be severely 
whipt and kept at the house of correction at work 
till she shall be sent away at her own charge ; and so 
for her coming again she shall be alike used as afore- 
said, and for every Quaker, he or she that shall a 
third time offend, they shall have their tongue bored 
through with a hot iron and kept at the house of cor- 
rection close to work till they shall be sent away at 
their own charge ; and it is further ordered that all 
and every Quaker arising from amongst ourselves 
shall be dealt with and suffer the like punishment as 
the law provides for foreign Quakers. 

May 19, 1658. (Page 321.) That Quakers and 
such accursed heretics arising among ourselves may 
be dealt with according to their deserts, and that their 
pestilent errors and practices may speedily be pre- 
vented, it is hereby ordered that as in addition to the 
former law against Quakers, that every such person 
professing any of their pernicious ways by speaking, 
writing, or by meeting on the Lord's day, or any other 
time, to strengthen themselves or seduce others to 
their diabolical doctrines, shall after conviction incur 
the penalty ensuing, that is, every person so meeting 
shall pay to the country for every time, ten shillings ; 
and every one speaking in such meeting shall pay 


five pounds apiece, and in case any such person hath 
been punished by scourging or whipping the first 
time according to the former laws, shall be kept at 
work in the house of correction till they put in se- 
curity, with two sufficient men, that they shall not 
any more vent their hateful errors or use their sinful 
practices, or else shall depart this jurisdiction at their 
own charges ; and if any of them return again, then 
each person shall incur the penalty of the laws formerly 
made for strangers. 

Oct. 19, 1658. (Page 348.) Whereas this Court, 
well understanding the dangerous events of the doc- 
trines and practices of the Quakers, hath by law en- 
deavored to prevent the same, but finding that some 
of them do disperse their papers, so expressing them- 
selves therein as that they may deceive divers of weak 
capacities and so draw them on to favor their opinions 
and ways. Now for the further prevention of infec- 
tion and guiding of people in the truth in reference 
to such opinions, heresies or blasphemies by them 
expressed in their books, letters, or by words openly 
held forth by some of them, the Court judgeth meet 
that there be a writing or declaration drawn up and 
printed to manifest the evil of their tenets and dangers 
of their practices, as tending to the subversion of re- 
ligion, of church order, and civil government, and 
the necessity that this government is put upon (for 
the preservation of religion and their own peace 
and safety) to exclude such persons from amongst 
them, who after due means of conviction shall remain 
obstinate and pertinacious, and this work the Court 


doth commend to the care and pains of the Rev. Mr. 
John Norton, speedily to effect. 

Oct. 19, 1658. (Page 349.) It is ordered that 
the Quakers in prison at Ipswich be forthwith sent 
for ; warrant issued out accordingly and return to the 
warrant made ; the Court convented the said Quakers 
before them and after much endeavor to convince 
and reform them, ordered that Samuel Shattocke, 
Lawrence Southwick and Cassandra Southwick his 
wife, shall be enjoined at their peril to depart out of 
this jurisdiction before the first day of the Court of 
election next, which if they neglect or refuse to do, 
they shall then be banished under pain of death, and 
if in the meantime they shall transgress against the 
new law made by this Court against Quakers, they 
shall be proceeded with as the said law requires ; and 
it is referred to the County Court of Suffolk to 
declare this sentence to them, and thereupon release 
them out of prison. 

May II, 1659. (Page 366.) Whereas Daniel and 
Provided Southwick, son and daughter to Lawrence 
Southwick, have been fined by the County Courts 
of Salem and Ipswich, pretending they have no es- 
tates, resolving not to work, and others likewise have 
been fined for siding with the Quakers and absenting 
themselves from the public ordinances ; and in answer 
to a question what course shall be taken for the sat- 
isfaction of the fines, the Court, on perusal of the law 
title arrests, Resolve that the treasurers of the sev- 
eral counties are, and shall hereby be impowered to 
sell the said persons to any of the English nation at 
Virginia or Barbadoes. 


May II, 1659. (Page 367.) It is ordered that 
Lawrence Southwick and Cassandra his wife, Samuel 
Shattocke, Nicholas Phelps, Joshua Buffum and Jo- 
siah Southwick, hereby are sentenced according to 
the order of the General Court in October last, to 
banishment, to depart out of this jurisdiction by the 
8th of June next, on pain of death ; and if any of 
them after the 8th of June next, shall be found within 
this jurisdiction, they shall be apprehended by any 
constable or other officer, there to lye till the next 
Court of assistance, when they shall be tried, and 
being found guilty of the breach of this law, shall be 
put to death. 

Oct. 18, 1659. (Page 383.) It is ordered that 
William Robinson, Marmaduke Stephenson and Mary 
Dyer, Quakers now in prison for their rebellion, sedi- 
tion, presumptions obtruding themselves upon us, not- 
withstanding their being sentenced to banishment on 
pain of death as underminers of this government, etc., 
shall be brought before this Court for their trials, to 
suffer the penalty of the law (the just reward of 
their transgressions), on the morrow morning, being 
the 19th inst. 

William Robinson, Marmaduke Stephenson and 
Mary Dyer, banished this jurisdiction by the last 
Court of assistance, on pain of death, being com- 
mitted by order of the General Court, were sent for, 
brought to the bar, acknowledge themselves to be the 
persons banished ; after a full hearing of what the 
prisoners could say for themselves, it was put to the 
question whether William Robinson, Marmaduke 


Stephenson and Mary Dyer, the persons now in 
prison, who have been convicted of being Quakers 
and banished this jurisdiction on pain of death, 
should be put to death according as the law provides 
in that case. The court resolved this question in 
the affirmative, and the Governor in open Court de- 
clared the sentence to William Robinson, that was 
brought to the bar, "William Robinson, you shall go 
from whence you came and from thence to the place 
of execution and there hang till you be dead. The 
like sentence the Governor in open Court pronounced 
against Marmaduke Stephenson and Mary Dyer, 
being brought to the bar one after another, in same 
words. W^hereas William Robinson, Marmaduke 
Stephenson and Mary Dyer are sentenced by this 
court to death for their rebellion, etc., it is ordered 
that the secretary issue out his warrant to Edward 
Michelson, Marshall General, for repairing to the 
prison on the 27th of this instant October, and take 
the said William Robinson, Marmaduke Stephenson 
and Mary Dyer into his custody and them forthwith 
by the aid of Captain James Oliver, with one hundred 
soldiers taken out by his order proportionately out of 
each company in Boston, armed with pike and mus- 
keteer with powder and bullet, to lead them to the 
place of execution, and there see them hang till they 
be dead, and in their going, being there, and return, 
to see all things be carried out peaceably and orderly. 
Warrants issued out accordingly. 

Whereas Mary Dyer is condemned by the General 
Court to be executed for her offence, on the petition 


of William Dier. her son, it is ordered that the said 
Mary Dyer shall have liberty fbr 48 hours after this 
day to depart out of this jurisdiction, after which 
time, being found therein, she is forthwith to be exe- 
cuted, and in the meantime that she be kept a close 
prisoner till her son or some other be ready to carry 
her away within the aforesaid time, and it is further 
ordered that she shall be carried to the place of exe- 
cution, there to stand with a rope about her neck 
till the rest be executed, and then returned to the 
prison and remain as aforesaid. 

Oct. 18, 1659. (Page 390.) It is ordered that 
there shall be a sufficient fence erected about the 
common prison in Boston, and house of correction, 
such as may debar persons from conversing with the 
prisoners, and the charge thereof to be borne half by 
the county of Suffolk, and the other half by the 
country; that the treasurer of the county of Suffolk 
see the same effected. 

Oct. 18, 1659. (Page 391.) Whereas Christo- 
pher Holder, a Quaker, hath suffered what the law 
formerly appointed, after being sent to England with- 
out punishment, presumptuously coming into this 
jurisdiction without leave first obtained, the Court 
judgeth it meete to sentence him to banishment on 
pain of death; in case he be found within this juris- 
diction three days after the next ship now bound from 
hence to England be departed from this harbor, and 
between this and the ship's departure, with the keeper 
at his own charge, he shall have liberty one day in a 
week to go about his business, and in case he shall 


choose to go out of this jurisdiction sooner on the 
penalty aforesaid, he shall by order from the Gover- 
nor or Deputy Governor be discharged the prison, so 
as he stay not above three days after his discharge 
from the prison in this jurisdiction. 

Oct. 16, 1660. (Page 432.) For explication of 
the law or laws referring to the manner of trial of such 
persons as are found in this jurisdiction after banish- 
ment on pain of death, this Court doth judge meete 
to declare that when any person or persons banished 
on pain of death shall, after the expiration of their 
time limited for departure, be found within the limits 
of this jurisdiction, all Magistrates, Commissioners, 
Constables and other officers of this jurisdiction, do 
use their best endeavors for their apprehension and 
conveying to safe custody, and being there secured, 
such person or persons shall at the next Court of 
assistance, whether in ordinary or specially called, 
according to direction of the law for calling of such 
Courts, have a legal trial by a jury of twelve men, 
and being found by evidence of their own confession 
to be the person or persons formerly sentenced to 
banishment on pain of death, shall accordingly be 
sentenced to death and executed by warrant from the 
Governor or Deputy Governor, directed to the Mar- 
shall General, unless they be regularly reprieved in 
the mean time. 

There being some women Quakers now in prison 
liable to sentence of banishment, whose husbands are 
innocent persons in that respect as far as we know, 
and are inhabitants in this jurisdiction, this Court 


doth order that the said women, named Margaret 
Smith and Mary Trask, be committed to the house of 
correction and there kept to constant labor and mean 
diet, according to the order of said house, until this 
Court release them, and that the sexitence of banish- 
ment upon the said persons be suspended, any law to 
the contrary notwithstanding, unless their husbands 
shall choose to carry them out of this jurisdiction, 
and not return without leave first obtained. 

In answer to a motion of the Quakers now in pri- 
son that they may have their liberty to go for Eng- 
land, the Court judgeth it meete to declare that all 
the Quakers now in prison shall forthwith have their 
liberty to go for England in this ship now bound 
thither if they will, and for such as will not go for 
England, shall have liberty to depart this jurisdiction 
within eight days, as they solemnly engage under 
their hands delivered by them to the Governor or 
Deputy Governor, that they will not return into this 
jurisdiction without leave from the Council or General 
Court first by them obtained. 

Whereas Joseph Nicholson and Jane his wife, being 
two Quakers banished this jurisdiction upon pain of 
death, and returning some time since into this jurisdic- 
tion, were called before the Court, where manifesting 
their desire to go for England the Court granted 
liberty to the aforesaid persons for three days to de- 
part this jurisdiction either for England or elsewhere, 
the said persons accordingly repairing to the ship 
then bound for England, but by reason of its fullness 
of the ships lading could not obtain their passage, 



and on their return tendering themselves to the Gov- 
ernor to be secured in prison until they may get 
passage for England, another ship being bound for 
England the undertakers whereof being willing to 
transport the said persons, the Court grants the said 
persons liberty to pass for England by the next op- 
portunity, and in the interim to be secured in prison, 
any law to the contrary notwithstanding. 

The court understanding that several inhabitants 
of this jurisdiction have lodged the Quakers now in 
prison, do order that the secretary issue out a warrant 
to the several persons and send the same by messen- 
ger of purpose to bring them all with speed to this 
Court to answer to their offence therein. 

May 30, 1660. (Page 419.) The whole court 
met together, sent for Mary Dyer, "who rebelliously 
after sentence of death passed against her, returned 
into this jurisdiction ; being come before the court 
she acknowledged herself to be Mary Dyer, the per- 
son, and was condemned by this court to death. Be- 
ing asked what she had to say why that sentence of 
death should not be executed, she gave no other 
answer but that she denied our law, came to bear 
witness against it and could not choose but come and 
do as formerly. The whole Court met together, voted 
that the said Mary Dyer, for her rebelliously return- 
ing into this jurisdiction (notwithstanding the favor 
of this court towards her), shall be by the Marshall 
General on the first day of June, about nine of the 
clock in the morning, carried to the place of execu- 
tion and according to the sentence of the General 


Court in October last, be put to death. That the 
secretary issue out warrant accordingly, which sen- 
tence the Governor declared to her in open Court, 
and warrant issued out accordingly to Edward Mich- 
elson, Marshall General, and to Captain James Oliver 
and his order as formerly. 

May 30, 1660. (Page 419.) Whereas Joseph 
Nicholson and Jane his wife, Quakers, formerly ban- 
ished this jurisdiction on pain of death (and being 
contrary to the sentence of the court, found within 
the same), were apprehended and committed to 
prison ; this court having called the said Joseph and 
Jane his wife before them and examined them on 
grounds of their not departure, do judge meet so far 
to declare their farther clemency as yet to give them 
respite on penalty of their former sentence, to depart 
this jurisdiction by the next fourth day, and if they 
or either of them after that day shall be found in any 
part of the same, they shall again be apprehended 
by any magistrate, commissioner or constable or other 
person and brought to the prison at Boston, where 
they shall be kept close prisoners and being legally 
convicted thereof, shall be put to death. 

It is ordered that the Quakers now in prison shall 
there remain until the next Court of assistance and 
then they shall be tried by a jury accordingly as the 
law provides in that case. 

Oct. 8, 1662. (Page 59.) This court heretofore 
for some reasons inducing did judge meete to 
suspend the laws against Quakers as such, so far as 
they respect corporal punishment or death, during 


the Court's pleasure. Now forasmuch as new com- 
plaints are made to this Court of such persons 
abounding, especially in the eastern part, endeavor- 
ing to draw away others to that wicked opinion, it is 
therefore ordered that the last law '^ title Vagabond 
Quakers, 1661," be henceforth in force in all respects, 
provided their zuhipping be but through three towns, 
and the Magistrate or Commissioners signing such 
warrant sJiall appoint the tozvns and number of 
stripes in EACH to be given. 

Oct. 21, 1663. (Page 88.) Whereas it is found 
by experience that there are many who are inhabi- 
tants of this jurisdiction which are enemies of all 
governments, Civil and Ecclesiastical, who will not 
yield obedience to authority, but make it much of their 
religion to be in opposition thereto and refuse to bear 
arms under others, who notwithstanding combine to- 
gether in some towns and make parties suitable to 
their designs in election of such persons according to 
their ends, it is therefore ordered by this Court and 
the authority thereof, that all persons, Quakers, or 
others who refuse to attend upon the public worship 
of God established here, that all such persons whether 
freemen or others acting as aforesaid shall and hereby 
are made incapable of voting in all civil assemblies, 
during their obstinate persisting in such wicked ways 
and courses, and until certificate be given of their 
reformation ; and it is further ordered that all those 
fines and mulcts of any such delinquent as aforesaid 
which are not gathered nor paid to the several treas- 
urers of the Counties, as also what fines shall be 


laid on them for the future, shall be delivered by the 
order of the County treasurers respectively to the 
selectmen of the several towns whereunto they be- 
long, to be by them improved for the poor of the 

A Review of the Past from the Quaker 

Salem, Mass., 9 mo. 30th, 1878. 
To the editors of the Observer: — 

My Dear Friends: — Please allow me, through 
the columns of thy paper, to present a few facts and 
reflections brought to mind as I have read, with 
interest, the report of the exercises in Mechanic Hall, 
9 mo. 1 8th, to commemorate the landing of Gov. 
Endicott upon our New England coast in the seven- 
teenth century. With much, of course, both of the 
letter and the spirit of those exercises I am in warm 
sympathy, but I have been led to see clearly that they 
present to the public, facts, solemn Jiistorical facts, in 
a somewhat one-sided manner. In simple justice to 
the present and rising generations, it seems to me 
that more of the truth, the whole truth, in the case 
should be stated. Had the scenes of violence and 
intolerance which marred the annals of the early days 
of this colony, transpired but ten or twenty years ago, 
we should consider ouf Christian faith and dignity 
and charity not a little compromised, if we came to- 
gether to celebrate them with song and oration and 
feast; why should the interval of two hundred and 


fifty years that has elapsed make us to feel so very 
differently in the matter? Why not with equal pro- 
priety, push this matter of historical research and 
commemoration yet a little further ; perchance we 
should find a line of descent with some unimportant 
breaks, running away back, through the years, as far 
as the founders of the Spanish inquisition. 

Now about this time, there were in different parts 
of England, some ten thousand Quakers, taken from 
their homes, their vocations, and their meeting-houses, 
and placed in jails, prisons — honest, industrious, in- 
offensive and God-fearing people. Many of the 
prisons were vile and filthy places ; oft-times they 
were placed in the same apartments among murderers 
and criminals of the lowest order, and numbers of 
the prisoners died during their incarceration from 
disease contracted, some being thus shut up for years. 

William Penn was about this time committed to 
Newgate, and in response to Sir John Robinson, who 
sentenced him and accused him of sedition, he 
said : — 

"We (Friends) have the unhappiness to be mis- 
represented. But bring me the man that will dare 
to justify this accusation to my face, and if I am not 
able to make it appear that it is both my practice 
and that of all the Friends to instill principles of 
peace on all occasions, (and war only against spirit- 
ual wickedness, that all men may be brought to fear 
God and work righteousness) I shall contentedly un- 
dergo the severest punishment your laws can expose 
me to. As for the King, I make this offer, if any 


one living can make appear directly or indirectly 
from the time I have been called a Quaker (since it 
is from thence you date my sedition) I have contrived 
or acted anything injurious to his person, or to the 
English government, I shall submit my person to 
your utmost cruelties. But it is hard that being in- 
nocent I should be reputed guilty." 

Robinson said to him: — "You bring yourself into 
trouble, heading parties and drawing people after 
you." Penn responded: — "I would have thee and 
all men know I scorn that religion which is not 
worth suffering for, and which is not able to sustain 
those who are afflicted for it. Mine is, and whatever 
be my lot I am resigned to the will of God. Thy 
religion persecutes, mine forgives, and I desire that 
God may forgive you all that are concerned in my 
commitment. I leave you, wishing you everlasting 
salvation." Well, it was natural amid such surround- 
ings and trials that some should be led to leave their 
native country and seek an asylum in our then wil- 
derness colony. Endicott now had the opportunity 
to play the part of a hero and a true Christian ; but 
no, he chose rather to be a tyrant and a persecutor ; 
whippings, imprisonment and death here awaited the 
coming of the poor, down-trodden Quaker. He had 
them publicly lashed, confined in jails, and three were 
hung on Boston Common. Between Penn and Endi- 
cott it was not so much a question of time, of edu- 
cation, of generation, (for they both figured in the 
same century,) as of obedience to the Light; the 
former followed and obeyed, the latter trampled it 


lander foot. And surely these must be rated as days 
of religious declension when high functionaries in 
•church and state could so far come to "believe a lie," 
as to give their countenance and their aid to the per- 
petration and the consummation of the follies, the 
horrors, and the crimes of the witchcraft delusion. 

The names of the three victims mentioned above 
■were William Robinson, Marmaduke Stevenson, and 
Mary Dyer. William Ledra was also executed later, 
in another place. Mary Dyer is described as "a per- 
son of no mean extract and parentage, of an estate 
pretty plentiful, of a comely stature and countenance, 
of a piercing knowledge in many things, of a won- 
derful sweet and pleasant discourse, fit for great 
affairs." She was a minister in the society, as were 
also the other two. Nicholas Upsal, notwithstanding 
the infirmities of old age, was exiled from Boston in 
the winter of 1656. "He had ventured to remon- 
strate with the rulers of Massachusetts, on their pass- 
ing a law for the banishment of ' that cursed sect of 
Jierctics lately risen up in the world, commonly called 
Quakers,' and prohibiting all commanders of ships, 
under penalty of a heavy fine, from bringing them 
into that jurisdiction. Leaving his wife and children 
and the colony in which long before he had taken 
refuge from persecution at home, the old man at 
length reached Rhode Island. Although during 
many years he had taken deep interest in the partic- 
ular Puritan congregation of which he was a member, 
he had found that forms and ceremonies could not 
satisfy his soul, and on hearing the views maintained 
by Friends he was "much refreshed." 


Rhode Island had, with the assistance of Roger 
Wijliams, been purchased by the new sect of Narra- 
gansett Indians, and immediately these faithful re- 
formers illustrated their forgiving spirit and true 
philanthropy by enacting that " none should be ac- 
counted a delinquent for doctrine." But no Puritan- 
ical power, no human hand, was strong enough to 
suppress the heaven-implanted and divinely directed 
zeal of the Friends to share their spiritual treasure- 
with others. About this time six of those who had 
been driven from Boston the previous year believed 
that the Lord was calling them thither again, and 
were assured that He w^ould give them grace to en- 
dure any suffering they might have to pass through." 

In the summer of 1657, eleven Quakers came to 
America from England in a little craft called the 
"Wood house." Their names were Humphrey Nor- 
ton, Robert Hodshon, Dorothy Waugh, Christopher 
Holder, William Brend, John Copeland, Richard 
Doudney, Mary Weatherhead, Sarah Gibbons, Mary 
Clarke. The master of the ship, Robert Fowler, was 
also a Friend ; five of them landed at New York 
while the remaining six went on to Rhode Island ; 
others came from time to time. Soon after their 
arrival John Copeland says in a letter to his parents : 

"Take no thought for me. The Lord's power hath 
overshadowed me, and man I do not fear ; for my 
trust is in the Lord who is become our shield and 
buckler, and exceeding great reward." Thus did 
God prepare His youthful servant to suffer for His 
sake. A few weeks later, Christopher Holder and 


himself were lying in Boston gaol, without bedding 
or even straw, lacerated from the effect of thirty 
lashes barbarously inflicted with a knotted scourge. 
For three days the gaoler refused to supply them 
with food or water, but they were sustained by their 
Saviour, and enabled to rejoice in His manifested 
love. Being accused as *' blasphemers, heretics and 
deceivers," they issued a declaration of faith, con- 
taining the following sentences: — 

"In Him do we believe, who is the only begotten 
Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. And in 
Him do we trust alone for salvation ; by whose blood 
we are washed from sin ; through whom we have 
access to the Father with boldness, being justified by 
faith in believing in His name. Who has sent forth 
the Holy Ghost, to wit, the Spirit of Truth, that pro- 
ceedeth from the Father and the Son ; by which we 
are sealed and adopted sons and heirs of the kingdom 
of Heaven. 

Believe in the Light, that you may be the children 
of the light ; for as you love it and obey it, it will 
lead you to repentance, bring you to know Him in 
whom is remission of sins, in whom God is well 
pleased ; who will give you an entrance into the 
kingdom of God, an inheritance amongst them that 
are sanctified." But the Governors would not allow 
any such assertion to alter their opinion that Quaker- 
ism was a dangerous heresy, and terribly rigorous as 
was the law against its promulgators it was not suffi- 
ciently so to satisfy them ; for Endicott and Belling- 
ham gave orders that all the Friends then in prison 


should be severely whipped twice a week. But the 
humanity of the inhabitants of Boston revolted at 
this decree, and the sympathy thus aroused led to the 
release of the sufferers, who were at once banished 
from the colony. Soon afterwards, John Copeland 
and his friend, William Brend, were sentenced to a 
severe scourging while passing through New Ply- 
mouth. The age of the latter awoke no compassion 
in the hearts of the persecutors. The following year 
after holding several meetings with William Ledra of 
Barbadoes, he was imprisoned at Boston, and received 
such brutal beatings, inflicted with a pitched rope, 
by a gaoler who had previously kept him without 
food for five days, and most cruelly fettered him for 
many hours, that he appeared to be dying ; Endicott 
being alarmed at this, sent a phj^sician to him, who 
thought his recovery impossible. But the hand of 
an unseen Healer was laid on him, and he must have 
been at least ninety when, eighteen years later, the 
following burial note was made out: — "William 
Brend, of the Liberty of Katherine's, near the Tower, 
a minister, died Seventh mo.. Seventh, 1676, and was 
buried at Bunhill Fields." Before returning to Eng- 
land he labored in Rhode Island and the West Indies. 
In 1662 he was one of the many hundred Friends 
confined in Newgate, fifty-two of whom died in con- 
sequence of diseases caused by the loathsome state 
of that prison. We may form some idea of the heav- 
enly consolation granted to this venerable pilgrim in 
his hour of need, by his beautiful "salutation of all 
Friends," from which a brief extract follows : — " It 


hath been upon my heart, when in the sweet repose 
of the streams of my Father's love and Hfe, by which 
my heart hath been overcome, to visit you with a 
loving salutation from the place of my outward 
bonds." After bidding them " flock together into our 
Father's fold, to get into His tent of safety, and lie 
down in the arms of His dear love," &c., he adds: 
"Oh, in the love and life of the Lamb, look over all 
weakness in one another, as God doth look over all 
the weakness in every one of us, and doth love us 
for his own Son's sake — in so doing peace will 
abound in our borders, it will flow forth amongst us 
like a river, and it will keep out jars, strifes and con- 
tentions." 1192420 

As the Governors of Massachusetts were regardless 
of old age, so were they of the weakness of women. 
We read of the astonishment of the people of Boston 
at hearing Sarah Gibbons and her young friend, 
Dorothy Waugh, offering praise and thanksgiving 
for the gracious support granted them during a 
cruel scourging, three days before and three days 
after which they were kept without food. A little 
later, Endicott sentenced Hored Gardner, of Rhode 
Island, to the punishment of the knotted scourge. 
She had left her home at Newport, from the belief 
that her Lord had called her to labor for Him at 
Weymouth, in Massachusetts, where her ministry was 
cordially received. The maid who had accompanied 
her on this perilous journey, to assist in taking charge 
of her infant, was the victim of a similar sentence, 
and the only protection granted the baby was that 


afforded by its mother's arms, who, when the execu- 
tioner stayed his hand, prayed that her persecutors 
might be forgiven, because "they knew not what 
they did." At a later date, Alice Ambros, Mary 
Tomkins, and Ann Coleman, who was apparently 
young, and in delicate health, were sentenced to be 
whipped through eleven towns, covering a distance 
of nearly eighty miles. Although they were them- 
selves enabled to praise the Lord for the marvellous 
help He granted them, the sight of their "torn bodies 
and weary steps" in the third town through which 
they passed, excited so much pity that one of the 
inhabitants induced the constable to commit the pris- 
oners and the warrant to his care, and at once set 
them at liberty. Taking advantage of their unlooked- 
for release they went to New Quechawanah, where 
they had a meeting. Subsequently it was for a time 
feared that Ann Coleman would die from the effect 
of other barbarous scourgings. To George Fox she 
writes : " Oh the love of the Lord, who hath kept 
His handmaid that put her trust in Him ; what shall 
I say unto thee of the love of my Father ; none can 
make me afraid; much service for the Lord in this 
land, and it hath not been in vain, and so, let thy 
prayers be unto the Lord for me. In that life and 
love which is unchangeable art thou near me." Good 
cause indeed had that patient historian, Sewel, for 
exclaiming: — "but when should I have done, if I 
would describe all the whippings inflicted on Quakers 
in those parts!" Sarah Gibbons and Dorothy 
Waugh, soon after leaving Boston, returned to Rhode 


Island, where they had previously been engaged in 
religious service, and we now find their names asso- 
ciated with that of Mary Dyer. About this time Hum- 
phrey Norton was finding a short respite from perse- 
cution in the same colony. A few months earlier his 
ministerial labors had been interrupted by an impris- 
onment at New Haven, Conn., where his right hand 
was deeply branded with the letter H, as a sign that 
he was a condemned heretic, and he was flogged in 
such a manner as to make some from the crowd, gath- 
ered by the beat of drum, exclaim, "do they mean to 
kill the man?" But He, who of old caused His chil- 
dren to receive "no hurt" in the midst of the seven 
times heated furnace, v/onderfully upheld him in this 
hour of extremest need, for he states that his "body 
was as if it had been covered with balm." Much did 
the people marvel when, at the conclusion of the inflic- 
tion, he raised his voice in thanksgiving and prayer. 
Not long after, Humphrey Norton received another 
scourging in New Plymouth. His rest in Rhode Is- 
land was a very short one, for he soon thought it 
right to go to Boston in company with a young 
Friend, named John Rous, who had previously been 
his associate in service, and sometimes in suff'ering, 
for their Lord. He was the son of Lieutenant Colo- 
nel Rous, a wealthy sugar planter of Barbadoes, who 
afterwards became a Friend, having, it is said, been 
much impressed by the ministry of his son. When 
Humphrey Norton told John Rous that sleep had 
fled from him because of the sorrow occasioned by 
a "sense of the strength of the enmity against the 


righteous seed" in Boston, he also felt that he must 
bear a part "with the prisoners of hope, which at 
that time stood bound for the testimony of Jesus." 
Longing to lose no time, they travelled night and day, 
and on their arrival at Boston were told of the state 
in which William Brend then lay from the effect of 
the gaoler's cruelty, and were begged by their infor- 
mant to leave the town, or they would be "dead 
men." But they were bound on a holy mission, from 
which no human power could turn them aside. 
"Such was our load," says Humphrey Norton, "that 
beside Him who laid it upon us, no flesh nor place 
could ease us." And a few hours later we find him, 
at the conclusion of the usual lecture of John Nor- 
ton, a minister who notoriously instigated persecu- 
tion, beginning an address in these words: "Verily 
this is the sacrifice which the Lord accepts not ; for, 
whilst with the same spirit that you sin, you preach 
and pray and sing, that sacrifice is an abomination." 
Although a charge of blasphemy could not be 
proved against him, there was no doubt that his com- 
panion and himself were guilty of being Quakers, and 
as such they were sentenced to imprisonment and 
whipping. The former, as the son of Lieutenant Colo- 
nel Rous, who had formerly resided in the colony,, 
was at first courteously treated by the magistrates, 
who hoped they might induce this young champion 
of the Cross to cast aside "the heresy" he was up- 
holding. But, notwithstanding their flattery, he 
steadfastly maintained his ground, vindicated the 
doctrines which he had adopted, and, as an English 


citizen, claimed the right of a trial in an English 
Court. But the Governors, well knowing what an 
alarming exposure of their conduct towards Friends 
would be involved by this, would not hear of such a 
course. "No appeal to England! No appeal to 
England!" was their cry. Three days later the 
prisoners underwent the flogging to which they had 
been condemned ; but when this punishment was 
soon renewed, the public indignation, already aroused 
by the treatment of William Brend, became so strong 
that it soon led to the liberation of the prisoners. 
In the midst of all afflictions the Friends were aided 
by the belief that their labors and sufferings were 
not in vain in the Lord. In a letter to Margaret Fell, 
John Rous says: "A firm foundation is there laid in 
this land, such a one as the devil will never get 
broken up." He writes, when again in Boston prison, 
where, about a fortnight later, he and his companions, 
John Copeland and Christopher Holder, underwent 
the mutilation of having the right ear cut off. Shall 
we shrink from reading their sufferings when we see 
the spirit with which they were enabled to endure 
them? "/;/ the strengtJi of God,'' is their language, 
"we suffered joyfully, having freely given up not 
one member, but all, if the Lord so required, for the 
sealing of our testimony, which the Lord hath given 
us;" words which may recall those of Brainerd with 
regard to his prayers for his brother and himself — 
" My heart sweetly exulted in the thought of any 
distresses that might light on him or me, in the ad- 
vancement of Christ's kingdom upon earth." 


So on, and on, and on, runs the record of the in- 
human cruelty of these early magistrates, a record 
which was most carefully avoided at the proceedings 
of the late celebration ; but I hasten on to conclude 
the narration : — 

Early in 1659, William Robinson, who had been 
preaching in Virginia, where his ministry was much 
blest, and Marmaduke Stevenson, who had lately 
come from Barbadoes, felt required of the Lord to 
go to Boston ; the former receiving a clear revelation 
that his life would be taken, he writes : " Obedience 
was demanded of me by the Lord, who filled me with 
living strength and power from His heavenly pres- 
ence which at that time did mightily overshadow me, 
and my life did say amen to what the Lord required 
of me." The two young ministers arrived at Boston 
on one of the public fast days, and were soon ar- 
rested. Like the apostles of old they tarried or they 
journeyed as they were restrained or constrained by 
the Spirit of the Lord. In a letter to George Fox 
from Boston gaol, Wm. Robinson writes: "Oh! my 
dearly beloved, thou who art endued with power from 
on High, who art of a quick discerning in the fear of 
God; oh, remember us — let thy prayers be put up 
unto the Lord God for us, that His power and 
strength may rest with us and upon us, that faithful 
we may be preserved to the end. Amen. 

Soon the aged Mary Dyer arrived at Boston, con- 
strained to carry comfort and cheer to her captive 
fellow-believers there, and was shortly imprisoned 
also. A Friend, writing with reference to their 


preaching before imprisonment, says: — "Divers were 
convinced, the power of the Lord accompanying 
them, and with astonishment confounded their ene- 
mies before them ; great was their service abroad in 
that jurisdiction for four weeks and upwards." Being 
brought before the Governor, Wm. Robinson asked 
leave to read an explanation which he had pre- 
pared: — "After describing the heavenly intimation 
he had received that it was God's will that he should 
lay down his life for the cause of Christ, he writes : 
I, being a child, durst not question the Lord in the 
least, and as the Lord made me willing, dealing 
gently and kindly with me as a tender father by a 
faithful child whom he tenderly loves, so the Lord 
did deal with me in ministering his life unto me, 
which gave and gives me strength to perform what 
the Lord required of me. Therefore all who are 
ignorant of the motion of the Lord in the inward 
parts be not h'asty in judging in this matter. The 
presence of the Lord and his heavenly life doth 
accompany me so that I can say in truth. Blessed be 
the Lord God of my life who hath counted me worthy 
and called me hereunto. Will ye put us to death 
for obeying the Lord, the God of the whole earth ?" 
Endicott took up this document, and after reading 
it pronounced sentence of death on its writer. A few 
days before his execution, in an epistle addressed 
"to the Lord's people," Wm. Robinson says: "The 
streams of my Father's love run daily through me, 
from the Holy Fountain of life to the seed through- 
out the whole relation. I am overcome with love, 


for it is my life and length of days ; it is my glory and 
my daily strength. I am full of the quickening 
power of the Lord Jesus Christ. I shall enter with 
my Beloved into eternal rest and peace, and I shall 
depart with everlasting joy in my heart and praises 
in my mouth." 

After Marmaduke Stevenson had received his sen- 
tence, he solemnly addressed the magistrates, conclud- 
ing with these words: "Assuredly if you put us to 
death you will bring innocent blood upon your own 
heads, and swift destruction will come upon you." 
It is a remarkable fact that many of these persecutors 
came to an untimely end, or were visited by severe 
personal calamities which resulted in death. "The 
hand or judgment of the Lord is upon me," were the 
words of John Norton, who, whilst walking in his own 
house, leant his head against a chimney piece and 
sank down never to speak again. And Major Gen- 
eral Adderton, who had scofifingly said "the judge- 
ments of the Lord God are not come^ upon us yet," 
was overtaken by a sudden and shocking death. 

During his imprisonment, Marmaduke Stevenson 
wrote his " Call to the Work and Service of the Lord," 
and not losing sight of his old friends he prepared an 
address to his "neighbors and the people of the 
town of Shiptown, Weighton and elsewhere." A few 
days before his execution he wrote a letter "to the 
Lord's people" from which the following extracts are 
taken : 

" Lambs of my Father's fold and sheep of His 
pasture, the remembrance of you is precious to me, 


my dearly beloved ones — who are reconciled to 
God, and one to another, in that which sea and land 
cannot separate ; here you may feel me knit and 
joined to you in the spirit of truth, and linked to you 
as members of His body, who is our Head and Rock 
of sure defence; here we are kept safe in the hour of 
temptation, and in the day of trial shall we be pre- 
served in the hollow of His hand ; here His banner 
of love will be over us ... . So, my dear friends, let 
us always wait at the altar of the Lord, to see the table 
spread, that so we may sit down and eat together, 
and be refreshed with the hidden manna that comes 
from Him who is our life, our peace, our strength 
and our preserver, night and day. Oh, my beloved 
ones ! let us all go on in His strength, who is our Prince 
and Saviour .... If I forget you, then let the Lord 
forget me. Nay, verily you cannot be forgotten by 
me ; so long as I abide in the Vine I am a branch of 
the same nature with you, which the Lord hath 
blessed ; we grow together in His life and image, as 
members of His body, where we shall live together 
to all eternity." 

After Mary Dyer had heard her sentence she only 
replied by the significant words, "The will of the 
Lord be done." And when Endicott impatiently 
exclaimed "Take her away, Marshal," she added, 
"Yea, joyfully I §0;" for her heart was filled with 
heavenly consolation from the love of Christ, and 
from the thought that she was counted worthy to suffer 
for His sake. She told the marshal that it was un- 
necessary for him to guard her to the prison. "I 


believe you, Mrs. Dyer," he answered, "but I must 
do as I am commanded." From the House of Cor- 
rection she addressed "An appeal to the Rulers of 
Boston," in which she asks nothing for herself, but 
manifests — as an anonymous writer remarks — "the 
courage of an apostle contending for the truth, and 
the tenderness of a woman feeling for the sufferings 
of her people." She writes : " I have no self ends, 
the Lord knoweth ; for if my life were freely granted 
by you, it would not avail me, so long as I should 
daily hear or see the sufferings of my dear brethren." 
It is said that on the day preceding that appointed 
for the execution, Mary Dyer's oldest son arrived at 
Boston, and was allowed to remain all night with his 
mother. He came in the vain hope of inducing her 
to make such concessions as might be the means of 
saving her life. 

The erection of gallows on Boston Common for 
these guiltless victims awakened such strong feelings 
of amazement and indignation amongst the inhabi- 
tants, as to give alarm to the magistrates. On the 
morning of the day appointed for the execution a 
great number of people gathered round the prison, 
and gave earnest attention to William Robinson, who 
addressed them from an open window of an upper 
room. But the rulers, who always studiously en- 
deavored to prevent the Friends from holding inter- 
course with the colonists, were afraid for the crowd 
to listen, at this crisis, to Quaker preaching, and ac- 
cordingly sent a military captain to disperse them. 
Finding this impracticable, he entered the gaol in a 



violent passion, and hurling some of the prisoners 
down stairs, shut them into a low, dark cell. One of 
this little company writes : "As we sat together wait- 
ing upon the Lord, it was a time of love, for as the 
world hated us, so the Lord was pleased in a wonder- 
ful manner to manifest His supporting love, and kind- 
ness to us in our innocent sufferings ; especially to 
the worthies who had now finished their course .... 
God was with them, and many sweet and heavenly 
sayings they gave unto us, being themselves filled 
with comfort. While we were yet embracing each 
other, with full and tender hearts, the officers came 
in and took the two from us (Robinson and Steven- 
son) as sheep for the slaughter." 

Boston Common was separated by the distance of 
a mile from the gaol, and the prisoners were escorted 
by two hundred men, armed with halberds, guns, 
swords and pikes — in addition to many horsemen. 
It was thought the safest arrangement for this proces- 
sion to avoid the direct thoroughfare through the city, 
and the drummers were ordered immediately before 
the three captives, and to beat more loudly if they 
should attempt to speak. Thus when William Rob- 
inson did so, the only words which were audible were, 
"This is your, hour, and the power of darkness." 
Marmaduke Stevenson's voice was drowned by the 
same means. "Yet they went on," as Sewel says, 
"with great cheerfulness, as if going to an everlasting 
wedding" — which indeed they were. In reply to a 
coarse taunt from the marshal, Mary Dyer said: 
"This is to me an hour of the greatest joy I ever had 


in this world. No ear can hear, no tongue can utter, 
no heart can understand, the sweet incomes and the 
refreshings of the spirit of the Lord which I now feel." 
Having bade farewell to his friends and mounted the 
scaffold, William Robinson addressed the assembled 
crowd : "We suffer not as evil doers, but as those who 
have testified and manifested the Truth. This is the 
day of your visitation, and therefore I desire you to 
mind the light of Christ which is in you, to which I 
have borne testimony and am now going to seal my 
testimony with my blood." Wilson, a minister of the 
city, changing the scoffing tone he had assumed 
whilst they were walking to the Common, now ex- 
claimed — "Hold thy tongue; be silent; thou art 
going to die with a lie in thy mouth." After the ex- 
ecutioner had adjusted the rope, William Robinson 
said, "Now are ye made manifest; I suffer for Christ 
in whom I live and for whom I die." Marmaduke 
Stevenson also spoke a few words to the spectators : 
"Be it known unto you all this day, that we suffer, 
not as evil doers, but for conscience sake. This day 
shall we all be at rest with the Lord." 

The friends of the martyrs were not allowed to 
provide coffins for them, nor even to enclose the pit 
into which the bodies were thrown. Wilson, the min- 
ister to whom allusion has already been made, com- 
posed a scoffing song on the sufferers. But no amount 
of indignity which might be heaped upon them 
could prevent their death from being a solemn 
attestation to the futility of every effort of a blind 
bigotry to crush the conscience of those who, bearing 


the image and superscription of Christ, rendered unto 
God the things that are God's and consequently with 
regard to these "things" acknowledged no ruler but 
him in whose kingdom their spirits dwelt. So deep 
an impression was made on John Chamberlain, an in- 
habitant of Boston, by what he saw and heard that 
day, as to cause his convincement of the truth of 
the doctrines held by Friends ; before two years were 
over he had been imprisoned, banished, and also 
cruelly whipped through three towns ; yet his Sav- 
iour suffered not his faith to fail, for we learn that 
this persecution "so far from beating him from the 
truth rather drove him nearer to it." 

After Mary Dyer had ascended the ladder, she was 
told that if she would return home her life should be 
spared. "Nay," she answered, "I cannot; for in 
obedience to the will of the Lord I came, and in his 
will I abide faithful unto death." To the charge of 
being guilty of her own blood, she replied: "Nay, I 
came to take blood guiltiness from you, desiring you 
to repeal the unrighteous and unjust law; therefore 
my blood will be required of your hands who wilfully 
do it." When asked if she wished any of the people 
to pray for her she said that she desired the prayers 
of all the people of God ; and to the proposal that 
an Elder should do so, she answered: "Nay — first a 
child, then a young man, then a strong man, before 
(being) an Elder in Christ Jesus." When accused 
of having said she had been in Paradise, she replied 
without hesitation, "Yea, I have been in Paradise 
these several days." The few more words she spoke 


were on the everlasting happiness now so near at hand. 
A Friend, who had united in her ministerial services 
on Shelter Island, sums up his description of her 
by saying: "She even shined in the image of 

Some eight or nine months later, Wm. Ledra, who 
is said to have been a Cornishman, though his home 
was in Barbadoes, was condemned to death for hav- 
ing returned to Boston after sentence of banishment. 
When in 1658, after mutual labors for their Lord, 
he had shared the imprisonment of his friend Will- 
iam Brend in an unventilated cell — the cruelty of 
which he had been the victim had imperilled his life ; 
and now, notwithstanding the inclemency of a New 
England winter, he was kept chained in an open 
prison. On the day before his death he addressed 
a letter to "the little flock of Christ" in which he re- 
marks that he was filled "with the joy of the Lord 
in the beauty of holiness, whilst his spirit was wholly 
swallowed up in the bosom of eternity. As the flow- 
ing of the ocean (he continues) doth fill every creek 
and branch thereof, and then retires again towards 
its own being and fulness, and leaves a savour behind 
it ; so doth the life and virtue of God flow into every 
one of your hearts, whom he hath made partakers 
of His Divine nature." Alluding to his tender yearn- 
ings for the young he says: "Stand in the watch 
within in the fear of the Lord, which is the very en- 
trance of wisdom and the state wherein you are ready 
to receive the secrets of the Lord. Hunger and 
thirst patiently, be not weary, neither doubt ; stand 


Still and cease from thy own workings, and in due 
time thou shalt enter into rest and thy eyes shall be- 
hold His salvation. Confess Him before men ; bring 
all things to the light that they may be proved 
whether they are wrought in God. Without grace 
possessed there is no assurance of salvation. By 
grace you are saved." The following day the fetters 
which had so long bound him were knocked oft', and 
we are told that he went " forth to the slaughter in 
the meekness of the Spirit of Jesus." He was sur- 
rounded by soldiers in order to prevent intercourse 
with his friends ; but before mounting the scaffold he 
exhorted one of them to faithfulness, and on bidding 
him farewell added, " all that will be Christ's disciples 
must take up His cross." A visitor to the city, from 
England, who witnessed this scene, having asked leave 
to speak, said: "Gentlemen, I am a stranger both to 
your persons and country, yet a friend of both. For 
the Lord's sake take not away the man's life, but re- 
member Gamaliel's counsel to the Jews : ' If it be 
of men it will come to nought ; but if it be of God 
ye cannot overthrow it ; be careful ye are not found 
fighters against God.'" This courageous stranger 
also told them that they had "no warrant from the 
word of God, nor precedent from our country, nor 
power from His Majesty to hang the man." 

William Ledra's last words were, "I commend my 
righteous cause unto Thee, O God ! Lord Jesus re- 
ceive my spirit." A few weeks before his death he 
wrote the following testimony to the willingness of 
God to supply all the need of his faithful follow- 


ers : — " I testify in the fear of the Lord God that the 
noise of the whip on my back, all the imprisonments, 
and the loud threatning of a halter, did no more af- 
fright VIC, through the strength and poivcr of God, 
than if they had threatened to have bound a spider's 
web on my finger — which makes me say with un- 
feigned lips, wait upon the Lord O my soul !" Like 
Josiah Southwick of Salem, he might have said, 
"Tongue cannot express the goodness and love of 
God to his suffering people." "Here is my body" 
were the words of the latter when sentenced to a 
severe scourging, " if you want a further testimony to 
the truth I profess, take it and tear it in pieces ; 
your sentence is no more terrifying to me than if you 
had taken a feather and blown it in the air." 

On the day of William Ledra's execution, Wen- 
lock Christison, of Salem, was placed at the bar ; he 
also had experienced, as Milton says, of those days 


" Heavy persecution shall arise 

On all, who in the worship persevere 

Of spirit and truth." 

Although exiled on pain of death, he had re- 
appeared at Boston and caused such consternation 
by entering the court just as sentence of death was 
being pronounced on his friend, as to cause perfect 
silence for a while. When now in his turn con- 
demned to die, he said, "The will of the Lord be 
done. If you have power to take my life from me 
the ivhich I question, I believe you shall never more 
take Quaker's lives frojn them. Note my ivords!' 



Just at this crisis the rulers of Massachusetts re- 
ceived tidings from England which caused a sudden 
change in their conduct; for on the day preceding 
that which had been fixed on for the execution of 
VVenlock Christison, he and twenty-seven other 
Friends were set at liberty ; and after two of them 
had been whipped through the town they were taken 
by a body of soldiers out of the jurisdiction. Would 
it not be a false refinement of feeling to be unwilling 
to contemplate the sufferings which, not young and 
strong men only, but tender and delicate women 
were enabled to endure for Christ? Moreover, is 
there not instruction for us in this: — 

"Mournful record of an earlier age, 

That pale and half effaced lies hidden awaj 

Beneath the fresher writing of to-daj." 

"Thou shalt lose thy life and find it, 

Thou shalt boldly cast it forth ; 
And then back again receiving, 

Know it in its endless worth." 

And here I close my recital of Puritan barbarities, 
a designation which in truth and justice I feel to ap- 
ply — a record of cruelty which for atrocity has prob- 
ably never been exceeded on the American continent; 
except possibly in the cases of Andersonville horrors 
during the late war, and the brutal practices of slave 
masters under the old slave-holding oligarchy. 

Compare now for a moment the early days of 
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. — Here was strife, 
contention and constant affright from Indian alarms ; 
tliere, Penn arrived in 1682 and made his famous 


treaty with the Indians, in the which they pledged 
themselves in their strong, quaint language "to live 
in love with Onas, (Penn) and his children as long 
as the sun and moon shall endure." I quote from 
Penn's biography: "When the account of this 
treaty reached Europe most of her politicians awaited 
with sneering smiles the consummation the}- ex- 
pected to follow. Going among the cruel Indian 
savages without arms, and pledging themselves never 
to use violence towards them ! What folly ! What 
madness!" But they waited and watched long, and 
still no violence or bloodshed ensued. Whilst the 
surrounding colonists were ever and anon at war with 
the Indians, and the scalping-knife and tomahawk 
brought death and terror to many a hearth, the 
Quakers of Pensylvania and all their possessions re- 
mained uninjured. 

Safe that quiet Eden lay, 

When the war-whoop stirred the land ; 
Thence the Indian turned away 

From their homes his bloody hand. 

"He remembered the treaty with the sons of Onas 
and kept it inviolate." The Friends of Pennsylvania 
on their side acted truthfully and honestly towards 
the red men ; and the Indian people, even when at 
war with other English colonies, and when the orig- 
inal parties to the treaty had died off, regarded the 
lives and property of the children of Onas as sacred. 
Such was the treaty of peace and amity of which 
Voltaire remarked that "it was the only one ever 
made without an oath, and the only one that never 
was broken." W'hittier writes : — 


" The Quaker of the olden time ! 

So cahn, and firm, and true, 
Unspotted by its wrong and crime, 

He walked the dark earth through ; 
The lust of power, the love of gain. 

The thousand lures of sin 
Around him had no power to stain 

The purity within. 

With that deep insight which detects 

All great things in the small, 
And knows how each man's life afl'ects 

The spiritual life of all, 
He walked by faith and not by sight. 

By love and not bj' law ; 
The presence of the wrong or right, 

He rather felt than saw. 

He felt that wrong with wrong partakes, 

That nothing stands alone. 
That whoso gives the motive makes 

His brother's sin his own ; 
And, pausing not for doubtful choice 

Of evils great or small, 
He listened to that inward voice 

Which calls away from all. 

Oh ! spirit of that early day. 

So pure and strong and true, 
Be with us in the narrow way 

Our faithful fathers knew; 
Give strength the evil to forsake. 

The cross of truth to bear. 
And love and reverent fear to make 

Our daily lives a prayer." 

Had Gov. Endicott listened as attentively to the 
Voice of Eternal Truth, Justice and Mercy within 
his breast, and obe}'ed this light of Christ in the soul, 
as faithfully as did William Penn, in Pennsylvania, our 


New England colony would have been spared those 
blood-stains upon her name and her fame — the mas- 
sacre, of Indian tribes, and the persecution of Quaker 
and Baptist settlers. Penn came as an ambassador 
of the Prince of Peace, and proved himself by his 
deeds to be one. Endicott, seeking to "serve two 
masters — God and Mammon," at times allowed the 
love of fame and earthly power to dim and utterly 
obscure his spiritual vision. So this same determ- 
ination to erect a state, to found a nation, at 
any cost, led on step by step to the perpetration 
of that national crime, the War of the American 
Revolution, which was a deliberate setting aside of 
the Gospel command, — "But I say unto you that ye 
resist not evil ; but whosoever shall smite thee on thy 
right cheek, turn to him the other also." And like- 
wise that solemn admonition of our Lord: — "My 
kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were 
of this world, then would my servants fight." — A 
crime as clearly the forerunner of our national woes, 
as that pain and suffering are sure to follow in the 
train of disobedience. 

The Ship of State was launched amid bloodshed 
and animosity, and hatred, and therefore the estab- 
lishment and perpetuation of slavery, for so many 
years in the Southern states, with its blighting influ- 
ences, as well as the upheavals and terrors of the great 
rebellion, were but the natural fruit of the tree just 
planted, and the legitimate consequences of the first 

If we owe something (and we do) to the sturdy 


morals of the Puritan, we certainly are equally in- 
debted to the character of those obscure Quakers, 
who right at the time, at the peril of their lives, pro- 
tested faithfully, earnestly and conscientiously, against 
blind and short-sighted bigotry, and against practices 
and methods which, though Christian in name, were 
in reality little better than Pagan. These hated and 
despised ones were true Protestants, holding up in the 
midst of ©position and persecution, the great truths 
of the gospel in their simplicity and purity. They 
were faithful ministers, preachers, witnesses ; their 
Lord owned them, and His peace was their portion. 
"Little ones," they may have been, but their Master 
pronounced positive condemnation against any who 
should '" ojjcnd one siichy We desire to judge no 
man, or men, uncharitably, wishing always to be 
found in the mind and of the spirit of Him "who, 
when He was reviled, reviled not again;" but this 
same "High Priest," the "Son sent of the Father," 
hath declared, as touching harm done to His lowly 
followers: "Inasmuch as ye hav^e done it unto one 
of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it 
unto me." 

So, if praises and adulation are to-day so lavishl}- 
bestowed upon these ancient blinded guides, surely 
one little word of explanation, one little word of 
commendation, one little word of blessing, is due to 
the memory of those innocents slain at the hands of 
the Puritan governor and his associates ; and though 
we, their spiritual descendents, (the New England 
Yearly Meeting of Friends), may have but a fraction 


of the faith, courage, fortitude and patience of these, 
our fore-fathers in the Truth, yet, in the exercise of 
that fraction, it becomes our duty, boldly to state 
their case, and hold up the bright example of their 
lives of self-denial, even in these latter days ! 

And to-day, amid the enjoyment of civil and relig- 
ious liberty, are we not to look back with as much of 
gratitude, because of their ''faithfulness unto death,'' 
as for the deeds and misdeeds of the Pilgrim fathers? 
Truly thy friend,

History of the People Called Quakers. 

By John Gough, published, 1790, in Dublin, Ireland. 
Vol. 1 : Lawrence and Cassandra Southick, their 
surterings, p. 349, 361 ; Josiah Southick, p. 349, 
361 ; Daniel and Provided ordered to be sold tor 
slaves, 376 to 381. 

The severities already inflicted on the members of 
this society had so affected many of the inhabitants 
of this colony that they withdrew from their public 
assemblies and met on the first day of the week, to 
worship quietly by themselves, for which they were 
fined 5 shillings per week, and imprisoned. Particu- 
larly Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick, an aged 
couple (who in the last year had been imprisoned 
and fined for entertaining Christopher Holder and 
John Copeland), with their son Joseph, were sent to 
the house of correction, whipped in like manner as 
those before mentioned, and had their goods taken to 


the value of i^4, i 5 shillings, for not coming to church. 
For the same cause Edward Harnet, aged 69, and 
his wife, 73 years of age, had 37 shillings taken from 
them without regard to their circumstances, which 
were but mean, or their age, which would natural!}' 
excite tenderness. About this time (1658) there was 
a meeting at the house of Nicholas Phelps in the 
woods about five miles from Salem, and upon the 
information of one Butler, the six following residents 
were taken up and committed to prison: Samuel 
Shattock, Lawrence Southwick and Cassandra his 
wife, Josiah their son, Samuel Gaskin (or Gaskill), 
and Joshua Buffum, who being kept close in the 
house of correction during the heat of the Summer, 
from their husbandry, after three weeks confinement, 
represented their case to the court in the following 

This to Magistrates at the Court in Salem. 
Friends: — Whereas it was your pleasure to commit 
us, whose names are under-written, to the house of 
correction in Boston, although the Lord, the righteous 
Judge of Heaven and Earth, is our witness that we 
have done nothing worthy of stripes or of bonds ; and 
we being committed by your court to be dealt with- 
al as the law provides for foreign Quakers, as ye 
please to term us ; and having some of us suffered 
your law and pleasures, now that which we do ex- 
pect is, That whereas we have suffered your law, so 
now to be set free by the same law, as your manner 
is with strangers, and not to put us on the account of 
one law, and execute another law upon us, of which 


according to your own manner we were never con- 
victed, as the law expresses. If you had sent us 
upon the account of your new law, we should have 
expected the jailer's order to have been on that ac- 
count, which that it was not, appears by the warrant 
which we have, and the punishment which we bare, 
as four of us were whipped, among whom was one 
that had formerly been whipped ; so now according 
to your former law, friends, let it not be a small thing 
in your eyes, the exposing as much as in you lies, 
our families to ruin. It is not unknown to you, the 
season and the time of year, for those that live of 
husbandry, and what their cattle and families may be 
exposed unto ; ' and also such as live upon trade. 
We know if the spirit of Christ did dwell and rule 
in you these things would take impression on your 
spirits. What our lives and conversations have been 
in that place is well known, and what we now suffer 
for, is much for false reports, and ungrounded jeal- 
ousies of heresy and sedition. These things lie upon 
us to lay before you. As for our parts we have true 
peace and rest in the Lord in all our sufferings, and 
are made willing in the power and strength of God, 
freely to offer up our lives in this cause of God, 
for which we suffer: yea, and we do find (through 
grace) the enlargement of God in our imprisoned 
state, to whom alone we commit ourselves and our 
families, for the disposing of us according to his 
infinite wisdom and pleasure, in whose love is our rest 
and life. From the house of bondage in Boston 
wherein we are made captives by the wills of men, 
although made free by the Son, (John 8, 36). 


In which we quietly rest, this i6th of the 5 th month, 

Lawrence Southick, Josiah Southick, 

Cassandra Southick, Samuel Shattock, 

Joshua Buffum." 

The first victims to this severe law were Lawrence 
and Cassandra Southick, their son Josiah, Samuel 
Shattock, Nicholas Phelps and Joshua Buffum. They 
were called before the court iith of 3rd mo., 1659, 
and on their trial (such as it was), the same arbitrary 
spirit of tyranny appeared in their manner of execu- 
ting as in passing their laws. The prisoners making 
a rational objection to their proceeding against them 
by their law as being in custody when it was made, 
and therefore as to them an ex post facto law. To their 
query whether it was for an offence against that law 
which then had no existence, they were committed 
to prison and banished, they received no reply; then 
one of them desired the governor that he would be 
pleased to declare before the people the real and 
true cause of their proceedings against them. He an- 
swered, it was for contemning authority in not com- 
ing to the ordinances of God. He further charged 
them with rebelling against the authority of the 
country in not departing according to their order ; 
to which they answered they had no other place to 
go, but had their wives, children, families and estates 
to look after ; nor had they done anything worthy 
of death, banishment or bonds, or any of the hard- 
ships or ignominious punishments which they had 
suffered in their persons, beside the loss of one hun- 


dred pound's worth of their property 'taken from 
them for meeting together. This remonstrance of 
their recent accumulated injuries silencing the Gov- 
ernor, Major General Denison made this unanswera- 
ble reply, that they stood against the authority of 
the country in not submitting to their laws, that he 
should not go about to speak much of the error of 
their judgements but added he, you and we are not 
able well to live together, at present the power is in 
our hand, and therefore the strongest must fend off. 
After this the prisoners were put forth for a while, 
and being called in again, the sentence of banishment 
was pronounced against them, and no more than a 
fortnight's time allowed for them to depart on pain 
of death ; and although they desired a respite to at- 
tend to their affairs and till an opportunity of a con- 
venient passage to England might occur, the unre- 
lenting malice of their persecutors would not grant 
them even this small and reasonable request; so 
Samuel Shattock, Nicholas Phelps, and Josiah South- 
ick were obliged to take an opportunity that offered 
four days after, to pass for England by Barbadoes, 
in order to seek redress from the parliament and 
council of state there, but without success. 

Lawrence and Cassandra Southick went to Shelter 
Island, where they soon died, within three days of 
each other; and Joshua Buffum retired to Rhode 
Island. The proceedings of these haughty rulers 
are strongly marked throughout with the features of 
self-importance, inhumanity and bitter malignity, but 
I know of no instance of a more persevering malice 


and cruelty, than that wherewith they persecuted the 
aforesaid Lawrence and Cassandra Southick and their 
family. First, while members of their church, they 
were both imprisoned for entertaining strangers, 
Christopher Holder and John Copeland, a christian 
duty which the apostle to the Hebrews advises not to 
be unmindful of; and after seven weeks imprison- 
ment, Cassandra was fined 40 shillings for owning a 
paper written by the aforesaid persons. Next, for 
absenting from the public worship and owning the 
Quakers' doctrine, on the information of one Captain 
Hawthorne, they, with their son Josiah, were sent to 
the house of correction and whipped in the coldest 
season of the year, and at the same time Hawthorne 
issued his warrant to distrain their goods for ab- 
sence from their public worship, whereby there were 
taken from them cattle to the value of £<\, 15 shillings. 
Again they were imprisoned, with others, for being 
at a meeting, and Cassandra was again whipped, and 
upon their joint letter to the magistrates before re- 
cited, the other appellants were released, but this 
family, although they with the rest had suffered the 
penalty of their cruel law fully, were arbitrarily de- 
tained in prison to their great loss and damage, being 
in the season of the year when their affairs most im- 
mediately demanded their attendance ; and last of 
all were banished upon pain of death, as before re- 
cited, by a law made while they were imprisoned. 
Thus despoiled of their property, deprived of their 
liberty, driven into banishment, and in jeopardy of 
their lives, for no other crime than meeting apart and 


dissenting from the established worship, the suffer- 
ings of this inoffensive aged couple ended only with 
their lives. But the multiplied injuries of this harm- 
less pair were not sufficient to gratify that thirst for 
vengeance which stimulated these persecutors, while 
any member of the family remained unmolested. 
During their detention in prison they left at home a 
son Daniel and a daughter Provided ; these children, 
not deterred by the unchristian treatment of their 
parents and brother, felt themselves rather encour- 
aged to follow their steps and relinquish the assem- 
blies of a people whose religion was productive of such 
relentless persecution ; for their absence from which 
they were fined ;^io, though it was well known that 
they had no estate, their parents having been reduced 
to poverty by repeated fines and extravagant dis- 
traints ; wherefore to satisfy the fine they were ordered 
to be sold for bond-slaves by the following mandate : 
"Whereas Daniel Southick and Provided Southick, 
son and daughter of Lawrence Southick, absenting 
themselves from the public ordinances, having been 
fined by the courts of Salem and Ipswich, pretending 
they have no estates and resolving not to work, the 
court upon perusal of a law which was made upon 
account of debts, in answer to what should be done 
for the satisfaction of the fines, resolves, that the 
treasurers of the several counties are, and shall be 
fully empowered to sell the said persons to any of 
the English Nation at Virginia or Barbadoes, to an- 
swer the said fines." Pursuant to this order, Edward 
Butler, one of the treasurers, sought out for a passage 


for them to Barbadoes for sale, but could find none 
willing to take them thither. One master of a ship 
to whom he applied, in order to evade a compliance, 
pretended the}' would spoil the ship's Company. 
Butler replied, no, you do not fear that, for thej- are 
poor harmless creatures that will not hurt anybody. 
The master rejoined, will you then offer to make 
slaves of such harmless creatures? and declined the 
invidious office of transporting them, as well as the 
rest. Disappointed in his designs and at a loss how 
to dispose of them, the winter approaching, he sent 
them home to shift for themselves till he could find 
a convenient opportunity to send them away. 

Is it strange that a few people became excited unto 
insanity, after such terrible outrages upon themselves 
and friends, as to appear naked in public ; rather is 
it not a wonder that more were not made insane .>

Lawrence South wick'. There is a tradition in 
the Southwick family that Lawrence came from Lan- 
cashire, England, to America in 1627, and returned 
to England and brought his wife Cassandra and son 
John and daughter Mary to Massachusetts in 1630, 
on the May Flower, in company with VVm. Bradford 
and others, and settled at Salem, Mass. We do not 
find any mention of his name in the public records of 
Salem until 1639, when he and his family were admit- 
ted as members in the First Church of Salem, and 
two acres of land was given him by the town of 
Salem to carry on the business of manufacturing glass 
and earthen ware. There is a tradition that he was 
one of the first to manufacture glass in America. 
This two acres of land was called glass-house field, as 
there were two others engaged in the same business, 
and the land is so designated to-day on the records 
and maps of said property, although the manufacture 
has long ceased to be carried on there. Said land is 
a valley running easterly from Aborn Street, and is on 
the south side of what is called Gallows Hill, where 
several persons were hung during the Salem Witch- 
craft delusion, a very dark page in the history o"f sec- 
tarian bigotry in Massachusetts. 



Lawrence and wife Cassandra and son Josiah and 
daughter Mary were fined, whipt, imprisoned and final- 
ly banished for being Quakers, and their son Daniel 
and daughter Provided were sentenced by the General 
Court to be sold into slavery. Lawrence and wife 
Cassandra went to Shelter Island, Long Island Sound, 
being banished under pain of death in 1659, and died 
there in the spring of 1660 from privation and expos- 
ure ; his wife died three days after him. Their son 
Josiah went to Rhode Island and established a home 
for himself and family. He came back to Salem in 
1660 to look after his parents' property and found the 
property in very poor condition, and was whipped 
for returning to Massachusetts. It seems incredible 
that any followers of Christ could have so belied their 
professions, but it was an illustration of the saying of 
Robert Pollock, in regard to the hypocrite, 

"Who stole the liverj of the Court of Heaven 
To serve the Devil in."

This will was allowed by the court 29, 9 mo., 1660.

Lawrence and Cassandra* Southwick, both bap- 
tised 2 mo., 24th, 1639, at First Church, Salem. Their 
children were : 

2. John'^, born 1620, died Oct. 25, 1672 ; married first, Sarah Tidd ; 

second, Hannah Flint; third, Sarah Burnett (or Burnell) 

3. Mary^, born 1630; married Henry Trask, son of Capt. Wm 


4. Josiah^, born 1632, died 1693; married Mary . 

* Cassandra, according to Homeric Legend, was the faires^ 
daughter of Priam and Hecuba, and the twin sister of Helenas. 
The children playing in the court of the temple of the Thym- 
brucan Apollo, not far from Illium, till it was too late for them 
to return home; a bed of laurel twigs was made for them in the 
temple, and there in the morning two snakes were found licking" 
their ears, from which resulted such an acuteness of hearing that 
they could hear the voice of the Gods. Cassandra afterward at- 
tracted the love of Apollo by her beauty, and he taught her the 
secrets of prophecy; but displeased by her rejection of his suit, 
laid upon her the curse that her vaticinations should never be 
believed. Accordingly she prophesied in vain of the treachery 
of the Grecian horse and the destruction of Troy. On the cap- 
ture of the city she fled to the temple of Minerva, and being 
captured she fell to the share of Agamemnon, to whom she bore 
twins, but she was inurdered by Clytemnestra. — Chamber $

April 8, 1659, Lawrence Southwick of Salem 
bought of Edward Lummus, of Ipswich, 3 acres of 
land. — Salem Records. 

Henry F. Waters, of Salem, Mass., says: "The 
names Southwick and Eastuic (Eastwic), found on our 
Salem records both suffered more or less change by 
the slighting of the w; the former occasionally ap- 
pears as Sethick, Southerick, Suderick, etc., and the 
latter being rather fixed as Estick." 

"In 1639 there were two acres of land set off for 
each of the persons Annanias Conklin, Obediah 
Holmes, and Lawrence Southwick ; and there was 
granted to the glass men several acres of ground ad- 
joining to their houses. This was in the neighbor- 
hood of Aborn street and near Strong Water Brook," 
(now, 1 88 1, Salem and Peabody). — Felf s Annals of 
Sal cm. 

Daniel Appleton White's records. First Church, 
Salem: "This covenant was renewed by the church 
on a solemn day of humiliation, March 6, 1660, 
when also considering the power of temptation 
amongst us by reason of ye Quaker doctrine to the 
leavening of some in the place where we act and en- 
dangering of others, doe see cause to remember the 
admonition of our Saviour Christ to his disciples, 


Matt. 1 6, 'take heed and beware of ye leaven of 
the doctrine of the Pharisees', and do judge so far as 
we understand it yt ye Quaker doctrine is as bad or 
worse than that of ye Pharisees, Therefore we do cov- 
enant by the help of Jesus Christ to take heed and 
beware of the leaven of the doctrine of the Quakers." 

What an impious act, as the Quakers have no creed.

This ballad, by John G. Whittier, has its foundation 
upon a somewhat remarkable event in the history of 
Puritan intolerance. Two young persons, son (Daniel) 
and daughter (Provided) of Lawrence and Cassandra 
Southwick, of Salem, who had himself been impris- 
oned and deprived of all his property for having en- 
tertained two Quakers at his house, were fined ten 
pounds each for non-attendance at church, which they 
were unable to pay. The case being represented to 
the General Court, at Boston, that body issued an 
order, which may still be seen on the court records, 
bearing the signature of Edward Rawson, Secretary, 
by which the tifeasurer of the County was " full}^ em- 
powered to sell the said persons to any of the English 
nation at Virginia or Barbadoes, to answer said fines." 
An attempt was made to carry this barbarous order 
into execution, but no shipmaster was found willing 
to convey them to the West Indies. — Vide Sezua/Z's

To the God of" all sure mercies let my blessing rise to-day, 
From the scotier and the cruel He hath plucked the spoil away, — 
Yea, lie who cooled the furnace around the faithful three. 
And tamed the Chaldean Lions, hath set His handmaid free' 

Last night I saw the sunset melt through my prison bars, 
Last night across my damp earth floor fell the pale gleam of stars ; 
In the coldness and the darkness all through the long night time. 
My grated casement whitened with Autumn's early rime. 

Alone, in that dark sorrow, hour after hour crept by; 
Star after star looked palely in and sank adown the sky; 
No sound amid night's stillness, save that which seemed to be 
The dull and heav\- beating of the pulses of the sea; 

All night 1 sat unsleeping", for I knew that on the morrow 
The ruler and the cruel priest would mock me in m^- sorrow. 
Dragged to their place of market, and bargained for and sold. 
Like a lamb before the shambles, like a heiter from the fold .' 

Oh. the weakness of the flesh was there — -the shrinking and the 

shame ; 
And the low voice of the Tempter like whispers to me came: 
•■ Wh\' sit'st thou thus forlornly I" the wicked murmur said. 
■■ Damp walls thy bower of beauty, cold earth thy maiden bed.^ 

■•Where be the smiling faces, and \oices soft and sweet. 
Seen in thy father's dwelling, heard in the pleasant street.'' 
Where be the vouths, whose glances the summer Sabbath ' 

Turned tenderly and timidly unto thy father's pew.' 

'■ Why sit'st thou here, Cassandra ? — Bethink thee with what mirth 
Thy happy schoolmates gather around the warm bright hearth ; 
How the crimson shadows tremble on foreheads white and fail-. 
On eves of merry girlhood, half hid in golden hair. 

Not for thee the hearth-fire brightens, not for thee kind words 

are spoken. 
Not for thee the nuts of Wenham woods by laughing boys are 

No first-fruits of the orchard within thy lap are laid. 
P"or thee no flowers of Autumn the vouthful hunters braid. 


•' Oh ! weak, deluded maiden ! — by crazy fancies led, 

With wild and raving railers an evil path to tread ; 

To leave a wholesome worship, and teachings pure and sound; 

And mate with maniac women, loose-haired and sack-cloth-bound. 

" Mad scoffers of the priesthood, who mock at things divine, 
Who rail against the pulpit, and holy bread and wine; 
Sore from their cart-tail scourgings, and from the pillory lame. 
Rejoicing in their wretchedness, and glorying in their shame. 

" And w^hat a fate awaits thee? — a sadly toiling slave, 
Dragging the slowly lengthening chain of bondage to the grave ! 
Think of thy woman's nature, subdued in hopeless thrall. 
The easy prey of any, the scoff and scorn of all." 

Oh I — ever as the Tempter spoke, and feeble Nature's fears 
Wrung drop by drop the scalding tlow of unavailing tears, 
I wrestled down the evil thoughts, and strove in silent prayer. 
To feel, oh. Helper of the weak ! — that thou indeed wert there I 

I thought of Paul and Silas, within Philippi's cell, 
And how from Peter's sleeping limbs the prison shackles fell. 
Till I seemed to hear the trailing of an angel's robe of white, 
And to feel a blessed presence invisible to sight. 

Bless the Lord for all His mercies ! for the peace and love I felt, 
Like dew of Hermon's holy hill, upon my spirit melt; 
When, '■ Get behind me, Satan!" was the language of my heart. 
And I felt the Evil Tempter with all his doubts depart. 

Slow broke the gray cold morning; again the sunshine fell. 
Flecked with the shade of bar and grate within my lonely cell ; 
The hoar frost melted on the wall, and upward from the street 
Came careless lausjh and idle word, and tread of passing feet. 

At length the heavy bolts fell back, my door was open cast, 
And slowly at the sheriff's side, up the long street I passed ; 
I heard the murmur round me, and felt, but dared not see 
How, from everj' door and window, the people gazed on me. 

And doubt and fear fell on me, shame burned upon my cheek. 
Swam earth and sky around me, my trembling limbs grew weak : 
"Oh, Lord! support thy handmaid ; and from her soul cast out 
The fear of man, which brings a snare — the weakness and the 


Then the drearv shadows scattered like a cloud in morning's 

And a low deep voice within me seemed to whisper words like 

these : 
•' Though thy earth be as the iron, and th>- heaven a brazen wall. 
Trust still His loving kindness whose power is over all." 

We paused at length, where at mj feet the sun-lit waters broke 
On glaring reach of shining beach, and shingly wall of rock; 
The merchant-ships lay idly there, in hard clear lines on high. 
Tracing with rope and slender spar their net-work on the sk\'. 

And there wei"e ancient citizens, cloak-wrapt and grave and cold. 
And grim and stout sea-captains with faces bronzed and old, 
And on his horse, with Rawson, his cruel clerk at hand, 
Sat dark and haughty Endicott, the ruler of the land. 

And poisoning with his evil words the ruler's ready ear, 
The priest leaned o'er his saddle, with laugh and scotl' and jeer: 
It stirred my soul, and from my lips the seal of silence broke, 
As if through woman's weakness a warning spirit spoke. 

I cried, "The Lord rebuke thee, thou smiterof the meek. 
Thou robber of the righteous, thou trampler of the weak I 
Go light the dark, cold hearth-stone — go turn the prison lock 
Of the poor hearts thou hast hunted, thou wolf amid the tlock I ' 

Dark lowered the brows of Endicott, and with a deeper red 

O'er Rawson's wine-empurpled cheek the flush of anger spread : 

•'Good people," quoth the white-lipped priest, •■ heed not her 

words so wild. 
Her master speaks within her — the de\\\ owns his child I 

But gray heads shook, and young brows knit, the while the sheriff 

That law the wicked rulers against the poor have made. 
Who to their house of Rimmon the idol priesthood bring 
No bended knee of worship nor gainful offering. 

Then to the stout sea-captains the sherift' turning said : 
■' Which of ye, worthy seamen, will take this Qj-iaker maid.' 
In the Isle of fair Barbadoes, or on Virginia's shore. 
-You may hold her at a higher price than Indian girl or Moor." 


Grim and silent stood tlie captains; and when again he cried. 
Speak out my worthy seamen !" — no voice, no sign replied ; 
But I felt a hard hand press my own, and kind words met my ear : 
•' God hless thee and preserve thee, my gentle girl and dear I" 

A weight seemed lifted from my heart, — a pitving friend was 

I felt it in his hard, rough hand, I saw it in his eye: 
And when again the sheriff spoke, that voice, so kind to me. 
Growled hack its stormy answer like the roaring of the sea : 

" Pile my ship with bars of silver — pack with coins of Spanish 

From keel-piece up to deck-plank, the roomage of her hold, 

By the living God who made me! — I would sooner in your hay 

Sink ship and crew and cargo, than bear this child away !" 

" Well answered, worthy captain, shame on their cruel laws !" 
Ran through the crowds in murmurs loud the people's just ap- 
•• Like the herdsman of Tekoa, in Israel of old. 
Shall we see the poor and righteous again for silver sold ?" 

I looked on haughty Endicott; with weapon halfway drawn. 
Swept round the throng his lion glare of bitter hate and scorn; 
Fiercely he drew his bridle rein, and turned in silence back, 
And sneering priest and baffled clerk rode murmin-ing in his track. 

Hard after them the sheriff looked, in bitterness of soul; 

Thrice smote his staff upon the ground, and crushed his parch- 
ment roll. 

" Good friends," he said, " since both have fled, the ruler and the 

Judge ve, if from their further work I be not well released." 

Loud was the cheer which, full and clear, swept round the silent 

As, with kind words and kinder looks, he bade me go my way; 
For He who turns the courses of the streamlet of the glen. 
And the river of great waters, had turned the hearts of men. 

Oh, at that hour the verj- earth seemed changed beneath my eye. 
A holier wonder round me rose the blue walls of the sky, 
A lovelier light on rock and hill, and stream and woodland lay. 
And softer lapsed on sunnier sands the waters of the bay. 


Thanksgiving to the Lord of life ! — to Him, all praises be, 
Who from the hands of evil men hath set His handmaid free; 
All praise to Him before whose power the mighty are afraid, 
Who takes the crafty in the snare, which for the poor is laid ! 

Sing, oh, my soul, rejoicingly, on evening's twilight calm 
Uplift the loud thanksgiving — pour forth the grateful psalm; 
Let all dear hearts with me rejoice, as did the saints of old. 
When of the Lord's good angel the rescued Peter told. 

And weep and howl, ye evil priests and mighty men of wrong, 
The Lord shall smite the proud and lay His hand upon the strong. 
Wo to the wicked rulers in His avenging hour! 
Wo to the wolves who seek the flocks to raven and devour ; 

But let the humble ones arise, — the poor in heart be glad. 
And let the mourning ones again with robes of praise be clad. 
For he who cooled the furnace, and smoothed the stormy wave, 
And tamed the Chaldean lions, is mighty still to save!

Newport, March i, 1793. 
For Eighty Silver Dollars, which I hereby acknowledge 
'<co have received, I now sell, set over alid deliver to 
Joseph Southwick, my mahogany printing press with 
♦everything thereunto belonging and now in possession of 
Capt. Geo. CornellT of this Town, as witness my hand 

July 20, 1774. The Legislature of Rhode Island 
met oftener, and each session brought up questions 
of great moment. Solomon Southwick of New- 
port had just published "Lord Somer's judgment 
of whole Kingdoms and Nations concerning the RigJits^ 
Pcnucrs and Prerogatives of Kings, and the Rights^ 
Privileges and properties of the people" and as the 
legislators of R. L read this inculcation of resisting 
evil and destructive Princes, the}' felt their own reso- 
lution strengthened and saw the path of duty plainer 
to their eyes. All began to feel that " the time zvas 
near approaching when tJiey must gird on //;r/r Swords 
and ride forth to meet their Enemies."* — G. W. 
Green's Life of Gen, NatJianiel Green, p. 74. 

Solomon Southwick, 

In 1783 represented to the assembly of Rhode Island 
that during the war, owing to the active part he took 
early in the war, he was compelled to leave the Island 
with his family and wandered for (14) fourteen 
months, during which time he was put to a cost of 

* Forces Archives, published in Connecticut. 


($5,000) five thousand silver dollars. That before 
the war he had bought two houses of Samuel Marr- 
yott, which were pulled down by the enemy. At this 
time he had half paid for the houses and could have 
paid the balance at any time in paper money, but he 
could not in conscience do this, as he thought to do 
so would be wrong. That he was then confined in a 
single chamber a prisoner on an obligation he gave 
Marryott for ($170) one hundred and seventy dollars. 
That at this time he was greatly distressed with a ner- 
vous disorder, and had been for several months, and 
there was no possibility of his recovery, but with the 
aid of good air and free exercise. That he has all 
the books and papers as Deputy Commissary General 
of this department for upwards of four years. He 
prayed that he might be set at liberty as it was abso- 
lutely impossible for him to pay his debts. He asked 
for two months to compound with his creditors. The 
assembly gave him the liberty of his house and the 
back yard. 

In October 1784, Solomon Southwick represented 
to the assembly that he had been a prisoner for debt 
for more than (13) thirteen months; that he had 
lost several thousand dollars by the war and could 
not collect one-tenth part of the debts due him ; that 
his two houses had been destroyed by the enemy ; 
that he had made proposals to his creditors which 
most of them were willing to accept ; but his com- 
mitting creditor would not come to any terms ; where- 
fore he prayed to be liberated. Prayer granted, liber- 
ated from prison, and no action was to be commenced 


against him for five years. — J. M. K. Southwick, per 
Hon. William P. Sheffield, about Solomon the Printer 
at Newport. 

From Newport Illustrated, by George O. Mason. 

The first newspaper published in Newport was is- 
sued in 1732 by James Franklin, elder brother of Dr. 
Benj. Franklin. It was a small sheet, the size of or- 
dinary letter paper, and was printed on a press 
brought from Boston, which was imported by James 
Franklin, and was long standing in the office of the 
Newport Mercury. 

On the 14th of Feb. 1734-35, James Franklin died, 
aged 38, after a long indisposition. The printing 
office he left to his son James, then a child. On the 1 2th 
of June, 1758, the son issued the first number of the 
Newport Mercury. He was assisted in the manage- 
ment of it by his mother, Ann Franklin, and in a few 
years, James having left Newport for some cause 
never made known, and never to return, her imprint 
alone appeared on the paper. The daughter of Mrs. 
Franklin having married one Samuel Hall, the Mer- 
cury was made over to him, and subsequently it was 
transferred to Solomon Southwick, who published it 
until December 1776, when it was discontinued for a 
time. Southwick, fearing the British, who were pre- 
paring to land on the Island, would destroy the pro- 
perty, to preserve his press and types, then standing 
in the office on Queen Street, near the middle of the 
parade ground, from falling into their hands, they 


were removed to the rear of the old building ore 
Broad Street, known as the Kilburn house, where \\\Q.y 
were buried in the garden. The fact that the property" 
was so secreted was made known to the Commander- 
of the British troops, who caused it to be removed to- 
the building known as the Vaughan house, making 
the north corner of parade and Thames Street, where 
in the chambers one John Howe, who was known as 
printer to his Majesty, regularly issued tlie Rhode 
Island Gaz-ctte during. 1777, 1778 and 1779, copies, 
of which papers can now be seen at the Redwood 
Library at Newport. After the war the property was. 
purchased by Mr. Henry Barber, and the Mercury 
was again issued Januar}^ i, 1780. It continued in 
the possession of the Barber family for over seventy 
years, having been owned by father, son and grand- 
son in succession. It is now the property of Messrs. 
Coggeshall and Pratt in 1879,

From "History of Printing in America, 

VV ith a Biography of Printers, and Account of News- 
papers," By Isaiah Thomas. 

Solomon Southwick was born in Newport R. I., 
but was not brought up to the business of printing. 
He was the son of a fisherman, and when a lad assisted 
his father in selling fish in the market-place. The 
attention he paid to that employment, the comeliness 
of his person, and the evidence he gave of a sprightly 
genius, attracted the notice of the worthy Henry Col- 
lins, who at that time was said to be the most wealthy 
citizen in Newport, one of the first mercantile charac- 
ters in New England and greatly distinguished in the 
Colony of Rhode Island for philanthropy and benev- 
olence. Mr. Collins took a number of illiterate boys 
whose parents were poor, under his patronage, and 
gave each an education suited to his capacity, sev- 
eral of whom became distinguished in the learned 
professions. Among the objects of his care and 
liberality was young Southwick, who was placed at 
the Academy at Philadelphia and there provided for 
till he had completed his studies. Mr. Collins then 
established him as a merchant with a partner by the 
name of Clarke. Southwick and Clarke did business 
on an extensive scale ; they built several vessels and 
were engaged in trade to London and elsewhere : but 
eventually they became bankrupts and their partner- 
ship was dissolved. After this misfortune Southwick 
married a daughter of Col. John Gardner, who for 
several years had been Governor of the Colony, and 
by this marriage he became possessed of a handsome 


estate. About this time Samuel Hall, who had a de- 
sire to leave Newport for Salem, offered his printing 
establishment for sale. Southwick became the pur- 
chaser in March, 1768, and succeeded to the business 
of Hall. He continued the publication of the New- 
port Mercury, and made some attempts at book print- 
ing. He published for his own sale several small 
volumes, but the turbulence of the times checked his 
progress in this branch of printing. Southwick dis- 
covered a sincere and warm attachment to the interest 
of the country. He was a firm Whig and sensible 
and spirited writer, and in other respects was qualified 
to be the editor of a newspaper and the conductor of 
a press in times of revolutionary commotion. 

The severity of the British Government to the prov- 
ince of Massachusetts particularly, was manifested by 
several acts of Parliament which were passed in 1774. 
By one of these acts the people were deprived of 
many of their chartered rights and privileges : b}' 
another the port of Boston was shut and the transac- 
tion of every kind of commercial business on the 
waters of this harbor was interdicted. These arbitrar}' 
edicts aroused the indignation of the people in all the 
colonies. They loudly expressed their resentment in 
various ways and the press became the organ through 
which their sentiments were energetically announced. 
Southwick was among the number of printers who 
were not backward to blow the trumpet in our Zion 
and to sound an alarm in the Holy Mountain of our 
liberties. He wrote and printed an address to the peo- 
ple of Rhode Island which was headed with the motto 


" Join or did' This motto had appeared in several of 
the newspapers, as will be mentioned hereafter. In 
this appeal Boston was represented as in a state of 
seige, which was actually true, for the harbor was 
completely blockaded by ships of war, and a large 
number of troops were quartered in the town. It is 
also further stated that these measures of the British 
government were a direct and hostile invasion of all the 
Colonies. The address was concluded by observing 
that the Generals of Despotism are drawing the lines 
of circumvallation around our bulwarks of Liberty, 
and nothing but unity, resolution and perseverance 
can save ourselves and posterity from what is worse 
than death. Slavery. Southwick, by his publications 
and exertions in the cause of the country became very 
obnoxious to those who were of the opposite party : 
and he with other zealous Whigs were marked as 
objects of punishment. When the British fleet and 
army took possession of Newport in 1776, he barely 
eluded the threatened evil. As soon as a part of the 
arm}' had landed, a detachment of both horse and foot 
were sent in all parts of the town to arrest the patriots 
who were endeavoring to effect an escape. South- 
wick, his wife with a child in her arms, and some other 
persons had got on board of an open boat and were 
just putting off from the shore into a very rough sea 
occasioned by a high wind, when a party of soldiers 
who were in pursuit of them came in sight. South- 
wick's wife had a brother who was a Royalist, and as 
such was known to the British officers, who however 
wished to secure the retreat of his sister and her 


husband. Aware of their danger, this brother put 
himself in the way of their pursuers and for a few 
moments arrested their attention by giving them in- 
formation of the several parts of the town Avhence 
the proscribed Whigs would probably attempt to 
make their retreat, etc. This friendly interference 
gave Southwick and his friends time to get a few rods 
from the shore before the party arrived at the spot 
they had just quitted; the boat was yet within reach 
of their shot : the soldiers fired at them but without 
effect, the passengers fortunately received no injury 
and were soon wafted to a place of safety.* Mr. 
Southwick was at this time a member of the General 
Assembly of Rhode Island ; he owned two houses 
in Newport, which with other property, were destroyed. 
He sought an asylum in Attleborough, on the fron- 
tier of Massachusetts and there erected a press, 
but being soon after appointed Commissary General 
of issues for the state of Rhode Island, he removed to 
Providence. As soon as the British troops evacuated 
Newport he returned to that town and resumed the 
publication of his paper which he contmued until 1 787, 
when by ill health and embarrassed circumstances he 
was obliged to relinquish business and to place the 
Mercury in other hands. 

In a historical sketch of the Mercury published in 
that paper after it had completed a century of its exist- 
ence, June 12, 1858, it is asserted that Southwick did 
not return to resume his paper, but that Henry Bar- 

* Mr. Southwick with his wife and eldest son Solomon, escaped, 
but a younger child and its nurse were captured. (M.) 


ber revived its publication in 1780. As yet no copies 
of the Merciiry have been found that were published 
from 1776 to 1780, when Barber's name appears, but 
it is mentioned by Mr. Thomas in the second volume 
of his work that Southwick resumed its publication at 
Attleborough, Mass. Copies of the Mercury are pre- 
served in the library of the American Antiquarian 
Society at Worcester, which show that Southwick 
was associated with Barber in May, 1785 ; that he was 
printing it alone in 1787, and that Barber was again 
printingitin his own name in 1788. Southwick's monu- 
ment is still seen in the cemetery at Newport ; a copy 
of the inscription has been furnished by Mr. Fred A. 
Pratt, the present editor of the Mercury, as follows : 
"In memory of (Solomon Southwick, Esq.) a gen- 
tleman of liberal education and expansive mind, for 
many years editor and proprietor of the Newport Mer- 
cury and Commissary General for the state of R. I., 
in the revolutionary war. He died Dec. 23, 1797, in 
the 66th year of his age. 

"•Just, generous, benevolent and sincere 

Was he whose hallowed dust lies here; 

If e'er a partial prayer he breathed to heaven. 

That prajer was for his Country's Glory given." 

The house which Mr. Southwick occupied on his re- 
turn to Newport with his printing office is that in 
which the Newport Bank is now located. Children 
of his son Henry Collins, reside in Albany, N. Y. and 
preserve volumes of the Mercury and other mementoes 
of their ancestor, among which is a diploma from 
the college and acadamy of Philadelphia for profi- 


ciency in philosophy and mathematics, 1757, conferr- 
ing upon him the degree of B. A. (M.) 

Southwick's pecuniary concerns were greatly im- 
paired by the rapid depreciation of the paper currency 
before the establishment of peace. He, like many 
others, cherished a belief that the nominal sum speci- 
fied in the bills would eventually be made good in 
specie. The impracticability of the thing was not con- 
sidered, even when one hundred dollars would not 
buy one dollar in silver. The delusion was not dis- 
covered by some until they found themselves involved 
in ruin. The government of the Union was indebted to 
Southwick both for his services and for money loaned. 
This debt, like others of its kind, was liquidated by 
notes known as final settlement. In the course of 
some months after they were issued, they were sold 
in the market for one-eighth of their nominal value. 
To this depreciated state was national paper reduced 
before the assumption of the public debt by the new 
government, and when it was at that state Southwick 
was compelled to sell his final settlement notes for the 
support of himself and family. He was engaged in 
the cause of his country in the times of her adversity 
and danger, but he had no portion of the benefits re- 
sulting from her prosperity. Assailed by poverty 
and borne down by infirmity, he lived in obscurity 
from the year 1788 to the time of his death, and be- 
ing unable to provide for his children, he left them to 
make their own way in the world. He lost his wife, 
who was a most excellent woman, in 1783, and he died 
himself Dec. 23, 1797, aged 66 years. 


Newport Printers. 

Mr. Geo. C. Mason, in an article in the New York 
Evening Post, under this caption, describes the early 
printers of NeWport and gives some account of their 
work. He says: 

Among the early printers were those of Rhode 
Island. There was a press in Newport in 1729. This 
was the fourth press set up in America, and James 
Franklin was the founder. He had been engaged 
in Boston in printing the New England Courant, a 
newspaper that strongly opposed the introduction of 
inoculation for smallpox, and did many other things 
that annoyed its readers. In 1 727 the journal was sup- 
pressed, and soon after that event Franklin removed 
to Newport. Here he brought out as early as 1729, 
a reprint of "Barclay's Apology for the True Chris- 
tian Divinity, as the same is set forth and Preached 
by the People, called in scorn Quakers." This was a 
large quarto volume, originally written in Latin and 
English, and then "translated into High Dutch, Low 
Dutch and French, for the edification of Strangers." 

In 1730 Franklin printed the charter granted by 
King Charles II. to the colony of Rhode Island, and 
in September, 1733, he issued the first number of a 
small sheet called the Rhode Island Gazette, which 
had but a short life, for it was discontinued on the 
24th of the following May. 

The Acts and Laws of the Colony were printed by 
Franklin until the time of his death, in 1734; and 
after his death, his widow, who had brought up her 
sons and daughters as printers, continued the business. 


There is ample evidence that Mrs. FrankHn was an 
energetic woman, and her imprint, "The Widow 
Franklin," may be found on many of the publications 
of that day. During and after the year 1745 the 
name of James Franklin often appeared with that of 
his mother, and in 1758 he began the publication of 
the Nezvport Mercury, a newspaper that has come 
down to the present day. One of the works that 
came from his press was : "The Strange and Wonder- 
ful Predictions of Mr. Christopher Love, Minister of 
the Gospel at Laurence-Jury ; who was Beheaded at 
Tower Hill, in the time of Oliver Cromwell's govern- 
ment in England ; giving an account of Babylon's fall ; 
or the Destruction of Popery, and in the glorious 
Event a general Reformation all over the world." 

Love's history was a singular one. He was opposed 
to King Charles, and yet was beheaded for plotting 
against Cromwell. He lias been spoken of, on the 
one hand, as an " angelical and holy writer," and on 
the other, as "guilty of as much treason as the pulpit 
could contain." 

In 1762 James Franklin died, and the business was 
carried on by his mother, "the Widow Franklin," who 
took for a partner Samuel Hall, a printer then working 
in Newport. The connection was a short one, for 
Mrs. Franklin died the following year. Hall continued 
to print in Newport, and many of the almanacs of 
that day bear his imprint. He sold out to Solomon 
Southwick, who became one of the most energetic 
of the early New- England printers. He was a poor 
boy, who had been taken up and aided by Henry Col- 


lins, a prominent merchant, in obtaining some educa- 
tion, and was engaged in trade when the Mercury 
office was offered for sale in 1768. How his attention 
was brought to it is not known, but he bought it and 
at once entered upon the duties of the office, all of 
which were new and strange to him. At the outset 
he espoused the cause of liberty, and on every occa- 
sion his views were expressed openly and clearly. As 
early as December 18, 1769, he had for the motto of 
his journal: "Undaunted by TYRANTS — we'll DIE 
or be FREE !" and this he followed up with sturdy 

But Southwick did not devote himself exclusively 
to the Mercury, for he brought out many pamphlets 
and small volumes that are now sought after by col- 
lectors. Among others, "Church's Entertaining His- 
tory of King Philip's War," Nathaniel Morton's "New 
England Memorial," "The Tryal of a False Prophet," 
and also a sermon preached in Newport by the "Ven- 
erable Hocham, the learned Rabbi Haign Isaac Kari- 
gal, of the city of Hebron, near Jerusalem." "A 
Discourse on Saving Knowledge," delivered at the in- 
stallation of the Rev. Samuel Hopkins, by Dr. Styles, 
was printed by Southwick in 1770, on a press and on 
paper made in this colony, and some of the types 
were made in Connecticut. But he gave most of his 
time to publications that had a bearing on the dispute 
between England and the colonies. In 1774, he is- 
sued a reprint of "The Whole of the Celebrated 
Speech of the Rev. Jonathan Shipley, Lord Bishop 
of Asaph, on the Bill for Altering the Charter of the 


Massachusetts Bay," which was prefaced with the re- 
mark, "It is allowed to be one of the best pieces 
wrote on the present dispute between North America 
and Great' Britain." Of Shipley it was said at the time 
of his death: " His talents were acknowledged on all 
sides, and whichever party triumphed in his assist- 
ance, the other wished for his support." 

During the same year Southwick printed from the 
Boston edition "An Oration delivered March 5th, 
1774, at the Request of the Inhabitants of the Town 
of Boston, to commemorate the Bloody Tragedy on 
the 5th of March, by the Honorable John Hancock, 

The time and the circumstances attending the de- 
livery of that oration I need not refer to ; Southwick 
gave his readers all the particulars that had reached 
him, and in the same paper, in the "poet's corner," 
he printed some verses growing out of the affair, with 
the title: "A Song for the Fifth of March. 
Tunc, ' Once the Gods of the Greeks,' &c." The verses 
closed with these lines : . . 

"A raj of bright Glory now Beams from afar, 
Blest dawn of An Empire to rise : 
The American ensign now Sparkles a star, 
Which shall Shortly flame wide thro' the Skies. 

" Strong knit is the Band which unites the blessed Land, 
No Daemon the Union shall Sever : 

Here's a glass to fair Freedom, come give us your hand — 
May the orator flourish forever!" 

While thus engaged, Southwick turned aside for a 
moment to give some aid to the anti-slavery move- 
ment, which was then beginning to take shape. 
Among other papers under this head, he printed an 


address signed by Drs. Stiles and Hopkins, concern- 
inp- the sending of black freemen to the coast of Af- 
rica. But when the British approached Newport and 
showed a disposition to land, he beat a hasty retreat, 
for the loyalists were anxious that he should fall into 
the hands of the enemy, and were quite ready to 
turn him over the moment an opportunity offered. 
The Mercury was discontinued December 2, 1776, and 
six days later the British army, under General Clinton, 
took possession of the southern part of the island. 

While here they published a newspaper called the 
Nczvport Gazette, of which copies have been pre- 
served. The French, in turn, had a press here, and 
in 1 780 they issued an almanac from the office of the 
Gazette Francaise, which is now very rare. It contains, 
with other matters, the names of all the French offi- 
cers, army and navy, and the vessels or regiments to 
which they belonged. 

The British evacuated Newport October 25, 1779, 
and on the 5th of January, 1780, the first number of 
the reissue of the Mercury appeared. It had then 
passed into the hands of Henry Barber. Southwick, 
after his return, was associated with Barber in the 
management of the Mercury. In 1787 he was again 
sole proprietor of the journal, but shortly after that 
it passed back into the hands of Barber, and his de- 
scendants continued to be its publishers until 1851, 
when the last publisher of the name died. 

After the war Peter Edes, who at one time printed 
the Boston Gazette and County Journal, established 
the Neivport Herald to oppose the paper money party, 


but it ruined him, and when he died in 1803 he was 
" as poor as a church mouse." Ohver Farnsworth was 
another unsuccessful printer. He started a newspa- 
per in Newport in 1799 and another in 1800. Both 
journals "died young." While^irinting the later one 
he brought out a small volume, the "Memory of 
Washington," a collection of eulogies and orations, 
intended to meet a demand of the moment, but of 
no lasting value. He also did a little business at trunk 
making, and probably in that way worked up some of 
his unsold publications. 

The people were too poor after the war to sustain 
the printer, and only occasionally an oration, or a ser- 
mon of more than ordinary interest, found its way 
into print. In 18 10 Rousmaniere & Barber, who were 
then publishing the Newport Mercury, brought out 
the first American edition of "Oberon." Weiland 
was then greatly admired. Wiesbeck had sounded 
his praise, the Monthly Review dwelt at length on his 
merits, and Napoleon had helped to make him popu- 
lar by the notice he took of him in the salon of the 
Duchess of Saxe -Weimar, all of which, no doubt, had 
great weight with the American publishers. The pre- 
face, giving a biographical sketch of the author, was 
written by William Hunter, then a young lawyer, who, 
in maturer years, was made Minister Plenipotentiary 
from the United States to Brazil. During the next 
year the same publishers put to press " Paley's Works," 
in five volumes, with a memoir by G. W. Meadley, 
who, two years later, was the author of a memoir of 
Algernon Sidney, of whom Coleridge was led to say, 

"What a gentleman he was !" 


I have thus briefly sketched what the press has 
done in this part of Rhode Island. No work of any 
great importance was ever printed here, but in the 
early history of the colony its printers were frequently 
employed by writers and publishers in other places. 
A. long list of such works as "Sermons by Samuel 
Fothergill" and "A Dialogue from the pen of Wesley" 
might be mentioned. The only American reprint of 
the "Fables of Pilpay," is that of 1784, printed in 
Newport by Solomon Southwick. — Nczvport Daily 
News, Oct, 29, 1880.

Daniel Southwick, son of Lawrence and Tamson 
Bufifum, was born at Salem, Mass., in 1705. He 
learned the tanning business of his brother and moved 
from Salem to Mendon (now Uxbridge), Mass., in 
1742, as per testimonial and records of the Smithfield 
monthly meeting of Friends. He bought 200 acres 


of land of Benjamin Taft, of Mendon, or Uxbridge, and 
started a tan-yard. He became a distinguished 
preacher of the Society of Friends, and after his 
death they passed as a tribute for his good work, a testi- 
monial setting forth his great ability as a preacher 
and his excellence as a man. Said testimonial was 
signed by Moses Brown,* David Buffum, Daniel Al- 
drich and eleven others of the prominent members of 
the Society of Friends of the Smithfield monthh' 
meeting. Daniel expired Nov. 19, 1776; the above 
memorial was signed Dec. 26, 1776. 

The tan-vats which Daniel used at Mendon are now 
visible (in 1880) ; i. e., the ground shows deep hollow 
places where the vats were. The farm which Daniel 
bought is now owned by James Comstock Southwick, 
and has been owned by some Southwick ever since 
Daniel's death. 

Testimony of the Monthly meeting held at Smith- 
field, in New England, Dec. 26, 1776, Concerning 
Daniel Southwick, late of Mendon, deceased : 

Forasmuch as it appears probable to us that some 
account of this, our valued friend, may be beneficial 
if committed to record as an encouragement to virtue, 
the following is preserved. He was born at Salem in 
Massachusetts in the year 1705, and descended of the 
family of Southwicks mentioned in Sewels and Bishops 
History. His father dying while he was young, he

dence, Rhode Island. The property, consisting of many acres of 
land, has become very valuable owing to the growth of the city to 
and about it. 


was deprived of his parental instructor, an advantage 
too lightly prized by many youth, to their own loss. 
He was educated amongst Friends, and when come to 
man's estate was religiously inclined, forsaking youth- 
ful follies. In this course he passed through experi- 
ence and discouragements till at times ready to sink. 
But a language passing though his mind in a season 
of this kind, "That he who had begun a good work 
was able to carry it on," so strengthened him that 
from thence he took courage, and embracing the cross, 
perservered in the way he saw to be that of duty, 
and not long afterwards was concerned to appear in 
the ministry in our meetings to the satisfaction of his 

He moved from Salem to settle amongst us in the 
year 1742, subsequent to which we were favored with 
his company most of the time to the period of his 
death, and we can say of him according to our view, 
that pride, covetousness, and anger had as little room 
in him as in any of our acquaintance. In his public 
testimonies he was much concerned to shew the nature 
and value of love and the pernicious consequences of 
hatred, ill will, and contention, and also to maintain 
the universality of the light of Christ, clearly proving 
this by the testimony of the scriptures. 

He was very able to point out and illustrate how 
opposite war and bloodshed are to the precepts of the 
Gospel, which teach to beat swords into plow-shares 
and spears into pruning-hooks, and to learn war no 
more. And he was sorely affected in viewing the la- 
mentable state of the English nation at this time. He 


was constant in the attendance of our religious meet- 
ings and exemplary in his deportment therein. He 
was peaceable and a peace-maker in the neighborhood 
where he dwelt, and as he lived so he died, evincing 
as death drew nigh, his strong love for his friends and 
desires for their preservation, and his example being 
worthy of imitation, we hope his concern may have 
increasing weight with each df us to excite watchful- 
ness and care, in order for our preservation in the truth. 
His understanding remained sound till near his last, 
and he uttered during his sickness many instructive 
and comfortable expressions, observing that "it much 
affected him to see persons advanced in life, with fam- 
ilies, trampling upon the testimonies of truth." At 
another time, after lying silently for some time in 
great pain, he cried out "I didn't know that I could 
bear this had it not been that our Master bore it be- 
fore me, but now I find I can bear this and more too, 
patiently," or words *to that effect. The evening be- 
fore his death he observed, '* I think the pains of death 
are upon me and that I shall not see the light of an- 
other day. The pain of body that I endure is very 
great, but the peace of mind overbalance all, for my 
mind is in perfect peace." His last sickness continued 
about three months, and during that time he under- 
went much bodily pain, which he bore with exem- 
plary fortitude unto the end. He expired on the 19th 
of Nov. 1776, in good unity with his brethren, and has 
we believe, arrived "where the wicked cease from 
troubling, and where the weary are at rest," and on 
the 20th of Nov. 1776, his remains were interred in his 


own grounds, attended by a large concourse of friends 

and others.

Josiah^ went to Danby, Vt., when he was 24 years 
of age (1801). Josiahwas a Quaker, and very much 
esteemed by all who knew him, for his love of peace, 
and good will towards all. His industry and thrift 
and cheerful disposition made him a pleasant com- 
panion for old and young ; his memory was good 
and eye sight until his death. — History of Danby Vt., 
published in 1874. 

JOSIAH SOUTHWICK, a native of Massachusetts, 
was born in 1777. He came to Danby when he was 24 
years of age ( 1801 ), married Mary Baker, of Granville, 
N. Y., and in 1801 settled on the farm where he no\V 
lives. He is the son of Lawrence Southwick, a native 
cf Salem, Mass., and was one of a family of twenty- 
children, he being the nineteenth child. His grand- 


mother, on his mother's side, was the daughter of 
John FrankHn, a printer of Newport, R. I., who was a 
brother to Benjamin FrankHn, the celebrated philoso- 
pher. Mr. Southwick is at present (1870) the oldest 
inhabitant of the town, being 93 years of age. He is a 
hale, robust, healthy old man ; his mental and physical 
powers being unimpaired. He can read common 
print without spectacles, and his memory at this ad- 
vanced age is good. Nearly the whole world of man- 
kind living at the time he was born have died. He 
has been a hard laboring, industrious farmer, a man 
of good morals and excellent habits. He is a mem- 
ber of the Quaker Society, a peaceable, quiet citizen 
and a good neighbor. Mr. Southwick is a Republican 
by principle and although never having been an active 
politician, he has attended every Presidential election 
since his residence here. We hope many years of life 
and vigor may yet be by a kind Providence meted out 
to him. He is one of the old landmarks and the only 
remaining link which connects us with the revolution- 
ary times. Many changes have taken place, and many 
important events have transpired in his day. Two 
generations have passed away since his settlement 
here, and there are less than a dozen living here now 
who were here at the time of his settlement. He 
is a man of cheerful disposition and of wit and humor, 
possessing a large fund of anecdotes, and is a genial 
companion. Many of his stories, although relating 
to events of seventy-five or eighty years ago, are still 
told with all the ardor of youth. Mr. Southwick is a 
man of domestic habits and a promoter of peace. He 


has been twice married. His last wife's name was 
Rachael Brown, with whom he now lives. He has 
but two children, William, and Hannah who married 
Joseph Fletcher. They live upon the homestead and 
have one daughter. May R. — Records of Toivn of

Biography of Solomon Southwick. 

By S. S. Randall, (with photograph, in "• Annals of 
Albany," Vol. V. Published by Munsell, Albany.) 

The citizens of Albany are here presented with the 
speaking" lineaments of a countenance long familiar 
to many of them ; of a man whose pride and boast it 
was to number himself among them ; who for a long 
series of years occupied a commanding position in the 
political councils of the state and whose career affords 
a signal practical illustration of what may be accom- 
plished, even under the pressure of the most discour- 
aging obstacles, by active perseverance, untiring labor 
and sound and fixed moral principles. Left at the 
age of twelve years a destitute orphan, without friends, 
without resources of any kind, other than such as 
nature had bestowed upon him in the inappreciable 
blessings of a sound and vigorous constitution — he 
commenced the work of self-education in the stern 
school of adversity, and progressed step by step with 
an unfaltering determination and an unyielding energy, 
until he found himself in the highest walks of honor- 
able usefulness, guiding the destinies of the state, 
wielding the truncheon of influence, power and wealth, 
dispensing patronage and diffusing knowledge. The 
history of such a man is worthy of the most careful 
study, developing as it does, the elements of self-cul- 
ture, and affording that encouragement to the indigent 
and friendless which may enable them to breast the 
storms of life and work out its manifold problems 
with honor and success. 


Solomon Southwick was born at Newport, R, I., on 
the 25th of December, 1773. His father was one of 
the earHest and most efficient champions in that gallant 
-Struggle for the rights of the colonists, which eventu- 
ated in the war of the revolution. As the editor of 
the Newport Mercury he fearlessly and powerful!}- 
asserted and maintained those republican doctrines 
which pervaded the hearts of the patriots of that da)- 
and materially aided in hastening the eventful crisis 
which was destined to give birth to a free and inde- 
pendent nation. His well-known sentiments and effec- 
tive exertions in the cause of liberty rendered him 
peculiarly obnoxious to the emissaries of the British 
Government; and placed under the vindictive ban of 
an unscrupulous and irritated tyranny, he became one 
of the earliest victims of oppression and power. From 
a condition of competency and even affluence, arising 
from his connection with some of the best and wealth- 
iest families of the province, and by his own industry 
and talents, he was speedily reduced to utter destitu- 
tion and penury. Hunted down by the myrmidons 
of despotism, he was driven from his home and com- 
pelled to seek elsewhere a precarious shelter from the 
vengeance of an exasperated foe. His wife soon fell a 
victim to anxiety, care and physical and mental suffer- 
ings, and he survived her loss but a short time, leaving 
five children dependent upon the world's cold charity 
for the means of subsistence. 

The subject of this sketch commenced his career, 
while yet a mere boy, as cook to a fishing company 
bound for Cape Cod ; and after enduring for several 


months the innumerable hardships and privations in- 
cident to such a station, he returned to Newport and 
apprenticed himself to a baker in his native town. 
Not long afterwards abandoning this employment, he 
went on board a coasting vessel in the capacity of a 
common sailor, where he remained until he attained 
his eighteenth year, when he obtained a situation as 
apprentice in a printing establishment in the city of 
New York. From thence he was transferred as a jour- 
neyman to the office of the Albany Register in this 
city, then conducted by his brother-in-law, John Bar- 
ber, printer to the state ; and soon after became a 
partner in that establishment. On the death of Mr. 
Barber in 1808, he succeeded to his interest in the 
paper ; and in this capacity, his talents, intrepidity 
and energy soon placed hini at the head of the Dem- 
ocratic party, of which the Register was organ and 
champion, and enabled him for a long time to exercise 
an almost unlimited influence upon the political des- 
tinies of the state. He continued in charge of the 
Register for a period of nearly thirty years, during 
which time he successively held the stations of Clerk 
of the House of Assembly, Clerk of the Senate, 
Sheriff of the county of Albany, Manager of the State 
Literature Lottery, State Printer, Regent of the Uni- 
versity and Postmaster of the city of Albany. 

After the discontinuance of the Register, he estab- 
lished and conducted for several years an agricultural 
paper under the title of the Plough Boy, first under the 
anonymous designation of "Henry Homespun, Jr.," 
and subsequently in his own name. At about the 


same period, he also became the editor of The Christ- 
ian Visitant, a periodical devoted to the interests of 
religion and morality, and to the refutation of infidel 
principles. Subsequently he assumed the editorial 
charge of the National Democrat, during which period 
he presented himself to the electors of the state as a 
candidate for governor in opposition to the regularly 
nominated candidate of the Democratic party, the Hon. 
Joseph C. Yates. During the prevalence of the anti- 
masonic excitement, he established and for several 
years conducted the National Observer, \\-\q. ^^xovixx- 
nent organ of anti-masonry ; and was soon afterwards 
nominated as the candidate of that party for the chief 
magistracy, in opposition to Mr. Van Buren and the 
Hon. Smith Thompson, the candidates respectively of 
the friends of Gen. Jackson and Mr. Adams. Failing 
of success however, and disgusted with the manifold 
vexations of political strife, he withdrew from the 
turbulent arena of public life and sought in the con- 
genial atmosphere of the domestic and social circle 
that happiness and peace of mind which he had failed 
to experience in the restless career of personal and 
political ambition. 

His long connection with the party interests of the 
day having terminated, the remainder of his life was 
devoted to study and contemplation, to the welcome 
enjoyments of the family fireside, and to the dissemi- 
nation of religious, moral and intellectual truth. The 
morning of his life was overshadowed with heavy and 
threatening clouds ; his noonday sun shone with a 

brilliant, perhaps a too brilliant and hurtful splendor ; 


but its evening declination was the steady tempered, 
and grateful recollection of a mellowed and softened 
light. It is to this period that we must chiefly refer 
those great exertions in the great field of moral and 
intellectual education, to which we are indebted for 
the most conclusive proofs of the vigor, depth, com- 
pass and soundness of his mind, as well as the com- 
prehensive benevolence and general philanthropy for 
which he was so eminently distinguished. From the 
years 1831 to 1837 ^^ delivered in most of the princi- 
pal towns of the state a course of lectures on the 
Bible, on temperance, and on self-education, which 
were universally admired and highly appreciated. 
He also published during this period the "Letters of 
a Layman," under the signature of "Sherlock," 
addressed to Thomas Hertell, Esq., of New York, 
chiefly on the subject of that philosophical infidelity 
originating with the French Revolution and which had 
taken deep root, particularly in the large cities and 
more populous places of our own country. This pub- 
lication was followed by " Five Letters to Young Men, 
by an Old Man of Sixty," designed to warn the rising 
generation against the many seductive allurements 
and criminalities which infest our cities and larger 
towns. For the last two years of his life he conducted 
the editorial department of the Family Newspaper, 
published by his son Alfred Southwick in this city, — 
a weekly journal devoted to literary and miscellaneous 
topics, — and devoted his leisure hours to a variety of 
literary efforts upon topics of general and local inter- 
est, theological, political, moral, and miscellaneous, 


which it was his intention at a future period to revise 
and prepare for the press. But it was otherwise de- 
creed by the all-wise dispenser of human events. 
Suddenly and without any previous warning, he was 
arrested by the hand of death, in the midst of his 
usefulness, and in the full maturity of his intellectual 
powers. On the i8th day of November, 1839, while 
returning, in company with Mrs. Southwick, from a 
social visit at the house of a valued friend, he was 
attacked by an affection of the heart, which in about 
fifteen minutes- terminated fatally. His age was sixty- 

The chief elements which entered into the composi- 
tion of Mr. Southwick' s character were noble and 
intrinsically great. Reared in the school of adversity, 
struggling with and heroically surmounting the most 
formidable obstacles to advancement and success ; 
working out the materials for usefulness, honor, and 
fame, by his own unaided exertions ; and finally 
triumphing through the force and energy of his char- 
acter, over all the impediments to his progress — ob- 
taining too that most difficult of all victories, the final 
and complete subjugation of the selfish propensities 
to the higher and nobler intellectual and moral nature 
— his example cannot fail to prove eminently benefi- 
cial to the youth of our land. Few men have occu- 
pied a larger space in the political history of our state ; 
few have participated more extensively, or for a longer 
period of time, in the public confidence and regard ; 
and few have experienced more striking vicissitudes 
of fortune in the busy arena of partisan warfare. The 


limits to which we are restricted on the present occa- 
sion, necessarily compel us to pass over this portion 
of his public career, and to contemplate him only in 
that aspect more particularly interesting to the num- 
erous and honorable class of which he was a distin- 
guished member," and for whose benefit his literary 
efforts were especially designed. Himself emphati- 
cally a self-made man — one of nature's noblemen — 
owing all of knowledge, of mental and moral culture, 
of success in life, of honor, fame, distinction and use- 
fulness, to his own exertions and perseverance, it was 
the predominant desire, the master-passion, so to speak, 
of his mind, to communicate to others and especially 
to the laboring classes, to the indigent, the obscure, 
the friendless, and generally to the YoUNG in every 
condition of life, that knowledge of their powers and 
faculties which should render them independent of 
extraneous circumstances and adventitious aid, in the 
development of their minds, and the advancement of 
their personal and pecuniary interest. His celebrated 
address at the opening of the Apprentices' Library in 
this city — an institution to the establishment of which 
his exertions materially contributed, and which long 
remained a proud and invaluable monument of public 
enterprise and private liberality — is an earnest, im- 
passioned and eloquent appeal in behalf of the 
"Young Mechanic," and secured for its author the 
most gratifying tributes of applause and admiration 
from the ablest statesmen and most distinguished 
philanthropists, at home and abroad. Wilberforce 
commended it as one of the noblest efforts of com- 


prehensive benevolence. Jefferson, Monroe, and the 
younger Adams and others addressed to him letters 
expressive of their exalted admiration of his character 
and efforts in the cause of humanity and education. 
This address was indeed a masterly production, over- 
flowing with an energy, a pathos and an eloquence 
which only such a subject, in the hands of such a man, 
could elicit. 

His exertions in aid of indigent and deserving 
j'oung men, and particularly of mechanics, struggling 
under the pressure of poverty and embarassment, 
were unremitted and most effective. While his 
ample fortune afforded the means, he assiduously 
sought out those to whom he might beneficially and 
advantageously extend the hand of assistance, and 
neglected no opportunity of advancing and encourag- 
ing the industrious and deserving, by substantial tes- 
timonials of the interest which he felt in their welfare. 
Many instances of his timely and efficient, but de- 
licate and unobtrusive interference, at critical moments 
in the career of the struggling sons of labor, are 
still gratefully treasured up in honest hearts and will 
be long remembered. In all his various lectures, 
addresses, and orations before literary and other socie- 
ties, at public meetings and on anniversary occasions, 
the welfare and prosperity of the laboring classes 
seemed constantly and steadily to have been kept in 
view; and he availed himself of every opportunity 
which was presented, to communicate the rich results 
of his own experience, of his varied and extensive 
reading and comprehensive and judicious observa- 


tions. with reference to the cultivation and develop- 
ment of the mind. 

A few months previous to his death, he had pro- 
jected the establishment of a literary and scientific 
Institute in this city, to be placed under his personal 
control and supervision, for the purpose of affording 
the requisite facilities to young men desirous of pur- 
suing the course of self-education which he had him- 
self marked out and followed. 

In person Mr. Southwick was somewhat under the 
middle size, with a countenance beaming with benignity 
and expressive of an enthusiastic, ardent and sanguine 
temperament — a countenance indeed indicative of the 
many and active virtues of his heart. When the 
writer of this brief and most imperfect sketch, enjoyed 
the pleasure of his acquaintance and intimacy, age had 
"silvered over his locks" without in any degree fast- 
ening its impress upon the clear contour of his noble 
brow, or bending his manly form. An insidious dis- 
ease, the result of sedentary and studious habits, had 
undermined the citadel of health, and deprived the 
evening of his days of that uninterrupted and placid 
enjoyment to which he might otherwise have looked. 
But his cheerfulness and philosophic amenity never 
for a moment deserted him ; and his domestic altar 
kindled to the last with the bright glow of diffusive 
charity and comprehensive benevolence. Peace to his 
ashes ! So long as the kindly virtues of the heart are 
revered and hallowed, so long will the name of SoL- 
OMON Southwick be held in remembrance by all 
who knew his sterling worth and by all who have par- 


ticipated in the blessings which he aided in securing 
to the young, by all who shall hereafter avail them- 
selves of those signal advantages in the intellectual and 
moral culture of their minds, which it was the high- 
est ambition of his life to promote. 


In Annals of Albanyi Vol. lo. Published by Munsell, 
Albany. (This was written by (jorham A. Worth, 
Esq., who was Cashier of the Mechanics and Far- 
mers' Bank in this city, and afterward President 
of the City Bank in New York.) 

Of the public men of Albany, office holders, poli- 
ticians and jurists, it may be expected that I should 
say something. Among the most prominent were 
Geo. Clinton, John Tayler, Ambrose Spencer, James 
Kent, Chancellor Lansing, Abraham Van Vechten, 
John V. Henry, John Woodworth, Thomas Tillotson, 
Abraham G. Lansing, Elisha Jenkins, Edmond Charles 
Genet, and last though not least, the editor of the 
Albany Register, Solomon Southwick. These are 
names too well known to require any comment. Man)- 
of them are identified with the history of the state, 
and will be chronicled in its pages. I can not in 
courtesy however, pass over my old friend Southwick, 
without some other notice than that of a mere casual 
glance of recognition. Southwick was a man of 
genius, with all the peculiarities which belong to that 
temperament ; its strength and its weakness, its excel- 
lencies and its errors, its delusive dreams and visions, 


its improvidence and its instability. He had great 
fertility of mind united with great enthusiasm. This 
was the source of his eloquence and power. His 
writings were rather outpourings than compositions. 
Yet he imbued them with so much life and animation, 
that he seldom failed to carry his readers with them. 
His style, though well adapted to the public ear, was 
redundant in epithet, inflated and declamatory; and 
his language though often strong and impressive was 
yet in the main loose and inelegant. He read but 
little and only from necessity. He referred to books 
for particular facts rather than for general information. 

He was by nature, honest, warm-hearted and gen- 
erous to a fault, but seemed to have no fixed or settled 
principles. In ethics as well as in politics he travelled 
from pole to pole. Yet the kindness of his nature 
went with him and never forsook him. His heart and 
his hand were always open ; and as he was credulous 
to excess and even superstitious, he was as a matter 
of course, swindled by every knave, and duped by 
every imposter he met with on the road. 

He was extremely fluent and even eloquent in con- 
versation. But he had little knowledge of the world, 
and the predominance of interest or passion, left his 
judgement too often at fault. He had the finest eye 
and forehead that ever belonged to mortal man, but 
every other feature of his face was either indifferent 
or defective. His countenance was therefore the cor- 
rect index to the character of his mind, incongruous, 
mixed and full of contradictions. 

The Albany Register, which he so long and ably 


edited, was pronounced by Judge Spencer to be the 
"Political Bible of the Western District." A greater 
compliment was certainly never paid to the conductor 
of a political journal. 

Mr. Southwick held, at different periods, the office 
of State Printer, Clerk of the House of Assembly, 
Sheriff of the County of Albany, President of the 
Mechanics and Farmers' Bank, and Postmaster of the 
city. Even in the cloudy days of his latter years, 
when friends, fame and fortune had forsaken him, when 
every objectionable act of his life was spread upon 
the record and all his faults and weaknesses blazoned 
to the public eye ; even then he received over "Thirty 
Thousand Votes " for Governor of the State. 

Solomon Southwick went to Albany N. Y. and 
became editor of the Albany Register, which was be- 
gun in 1788 as a Democratic paper, and with which 
he was connected for a period of nearly thirty years. 
He was successively Clerk of the House of the As- 
sembly at Albany, Clerk of the Senate, Sheriff of the 
County, manager of the State Literature Lottery, 
State Printer, regent of the University, Postmaster of 
the city, and President of the Farmers and Mechanics' 
Bank. For a considerable time he was at the head 
of the Democratic party, wielding almost unlimited 
influence upon the political destinies of the State. 
Besides the Register, which he published in his own 
name from 1808 to 18 17, he also published the Christ- 
ian Visitant, in 181 5, and the PlongJi Boy, an agri- 



cultural paper, in 1819. He edited the National 
Democrat in 181 7, the National Observer in 1826, 
and the Family Neivspapcr in 1838. He was twice 
nominated for Governor, but his party was in the mi- 
nority at that time. He was a voluminous writer and 
left several published volumes. He died suddenly 
Nov. 18, 1839, aged 66. His brother, Henry C, was 
a practical printer and was sometimes associated with 
him in the business. He married Jane, the sister of 
John Barber who established the Register, and whom 
he succeeded as its proprietor. She survived him 
several years. Of six sons, but one left posterity. 
The Albany Barbers were of a different family from 
those of Newport. (M.)

Copied from the Friends' Review of Philadelphia. Vol. 
43, No. 2, Page 35. 

Died on the lOth of 6th mo.. 1880, at her residence 
in Northbridge, Worcester Co., Mass., Phebe S. Marsh, 
in the 87th year of her age, an elder of Uxbridge 
Monthly Meeting. This dear Friend exemplified in 
an eminent degree, during her long and useful life, 
the spirit of her Divine Master. Very simple in her 
habits of living, yet her hand and heart were ever 
open to the cry of distress, and her charities, like the 
gentle dew, were distributed quietly and refreshingly 
on the various objects of her care. With a meek 
and loving spirit, yet firm in the adherence to our 
Christian principles, she filled the station of Elder 
most acceptably. In her last painful illness she often 
exclaimed " it is nothing to what my Saviour bore for 
me," and though in her anguish at times she was 



brought into near sympathy with our Blessed Saviour 
when He exclaimed, " My God, My God, why hast 
thou forsaken me !" yet we have the comforting assur- 
ance that His Grace was sufficient for her, and in hum- 
ble dependence on the mercy of God in Jesus Christ, 
she has entered that rest wJiich remaineth for the 
people of God.

The above twelve all lived to get married, and the 
nine boys were all tanners and curriers and carried

Zadock Southwick started tanning in a small 
way in the town of Clinton, Dutchess Co., N. Y., and 
after two or three years bought the farm two miles 
north of Friend's Stone Meeting House in said town, 
and two miles from his father Lawrence, now (in 1875), 
known as Widow Halsted farm of 80 acres, and es- 
blished the tanning and currying business quite largely 
for that day, 1789 or 1790. In 1802 and 1803, he es- 
tablished a tanning and currying business at Centre- 
ville, Ulster Co., starting James C. Moore, (who 
married his sister). 

Zadock Southwick continued at Clinton until 1807, 
when he removed to Poughkeepsie, bought a property 
bounding on the Hudson River and erected a tannery 
thereon, starting a leather store in the village in con- 
nection with the currying business, and was very suc- 
cessful. In 1 8 14, he purchased a landed property with 
ample water power in Greenfield, in the town of War- 
warsing, Ulster Co., in the midst of a hemlock region, 
and established a hemlock sole leather tannery thereon, 
using water power to carry on the business, giving 


his oldest son Henry an interest therein and some 
years later selling him the business and property. 

In i8i6, he sold his business at Poughkeepsie to 
his sons Willett H., Robert B., and Edward C, and 
at Willet's death in i8i8, Stephen took his place in the 
business. Willett H., son of Edward C, now (1875) 
occupies the premises and conducts the business, 
which has been continued uninterruptedly since first 
started in 1807. 

Zadock in 1821, purchased a farm, about three 
miles lower down the stream, from the one bought in 
Greenfield in 18 14, and two miles westerly from El- 
lenville and put up a large building enclosing the 
entire tanning operations and also large bark sheds 
and several tenements. 

He died there Oct. 23, 1823, and was buried in the 
burial grounds of Friends, in Greenfield. All his sons 
were brought up to know the art and mystery of tan- 

Zadock let the society of Friends have the use of a 
building for holding meetings in Poughkeepsie, and was 
noted for his hospitality in entertaining Friends who 
came from a distance to attend meetings. His sons 
said facetiously that their father kept Quaker tavern. 
All of his children attended the Nine Partners Friend's 
School. At Zadock's death he appointed his son 
Adna H., to carry out his will, which was to provide 
for the education of those younger than himself and 
to pay them certain legacies on arriving of age. 

Zadock was highly esteemed as a man of sterling 
integrity and for his business energy and capacity, 
for whatever he undertook he was successful in.

Jonathan Southwick, the fifth child of George 
and Lydia Southwick, born Aug. 15, 1786, was mar- 
ried to Martha Irish about the first of 181 1, and 
started at once for the western wilderness and located 
in what was then known as town of Willink, Niagara 
Co., Holland Purchase, now North Collins, Erie Co. 
From Buffalo (then a small village), to the place in 
which he located was a distance of twenty-five miles. 
The most of the distance was through dense woods 
with no road whatever. Their only effects were 
packed upon a rude sled, drawn by a yoke of oxen. 
Their journey completed, they stopped in the log 
cabin of one of the families who preceded them, till 
he could cut away the trees on his new possessions, 
a large enough place in which to erect a small log 
house. This occupied but few weeks and they were 
soon settled in their new house. Their nearest neigh- 
bor was one mile south ; their nearest store and grist 
mill, in the town of Hamburg, requiring five or six 
days to make the round trip with oxen, through 
swamps, over hills, over logs and brush. Thus they 
began life in the new country, the sighing and moan- 
ing of the forest their only welcome ; the howl of the 
wolf and the screech of the panther the unly token of 
life outside their little inclosure. Here they toiled, 
cleared their land and became one of the 'most re- 
spected families of the rapidly populating country. 


He started a nursery early and supplied the fruit trees 
for nearly all the oldest orchards in the surrounding 
towns. He lost the use of his left eye in the autumn 
of 1810, he was stooping to kindle a fire, when the 
knob upon the end of the crane (which had been left 
out) struck his eye, destroying his sight. Then again 
about the year 1827, he was stooping again in the 
dark, striking a swift stick, which destroyed the sight 
of his right eye : he was now totally blind. He still 
continued his farm work, raising trees and bee keep- 
ing. All the other senses so noticeable in persons 
who are blind seemed wonderfully developed in him, 
and many interesting anecdotes are told of his quick 
wit, and wonderful appreciation of things around him. 
Strange as it seems, he would work for hours in the 
garden, pulling weeds, but never destroying his plants 
or vegetables. Keeping bees, he used to make his 
own bee hives, and it is said upon one occasion, hav- 
ing made several, they were left outside upon the 
ground, some of them wrong side up ; during the 
night there was a heavy rain storm and in the morn- 
ing it was found each one contained water, showing 
his good workmanship, as we all know of many far- 
mers with full possession of their sight who could 
not make a box to hold gravel, much less water. He, 
as well as all the early settlers, experienced much 
annoyance with wild animals. His sheep were always 
kept at night in a yard near the house, on several 
occasions the wolves would surround the house and 
sheep in great numbers, and the only way he had to 
protect his sheep was to keep a brisk fire burning in 


the large fire place, and keep throwing coals and burn- 
ing brands from the door, which kept the wolves at a 
respectable distance. The house and barn which he 
erected in large old fashioned style about the year 
1820, in place of his log cabin and brush barn, are 
still standing and in good repair. 

He died Feb. 22, 1852, after a lingering illness 
caused by overheating himself the summer previous, 
weeding his garden, as he was always so fond of work, 
his ambition outlived his strength. Was in his 66th 
year when he died. His wife Martha outlived him 
twelve years, dying in the spring of 1864.

L\ Memoriam. 
By Rev. Nathan S. Hill. 

Using the beautiful imagery of Apostolic times, 
Nathan Southwick "fell asleep," (Millville, Mass.), 
Dec. II, 1845, aged 64 years. 

If " the memor}- of the just is blessed;" if the de- 
parture oi the wise and good from this sublunarx' 
sphere have any tendency to awaken the minds of 
others to the fleeting nature of their own existence ; 
if this example of those who, "through faith and 
patience inherit the promises," be at all instrumental 
in leading survivors to walk in their steps, it is hoped 
that this brief memento of a most valuable member 
of the Christian church will not be without its use. 

There were many qualities in the character of this 
excellent man which entitled him to peculiar respect, 
and rendered his death the occasion of no common 
sorrow. He possessed a sound understanding and a 
mind well stored with useful knowledge. In his nature 
there was a blending of mental faculties and moral 
powers that developed a character of remarkable 
transparency. The natural strength of his mind, and 
the strict inflexible integrity which marked his whole 
conduct, coupled with easy, unassuming social quali- 
ties, gave him an influence seldom possessed by per- 
sons who move in a much higher sphere, and little 
capable of being understood b}' those who had not 
the privilege of witnessing it. 

Long before his attention was directed to the dis- 
tinctive features of the religious life, we find him 


practicing the lesson of self-denial for the benefit of 
others. When a young man he was remarkably 
thoughtful for the welfare of his aged parents; he 
delighted to minister to their wants and cheer the 
sombre pathway to the tomb. Thoughtfulness of 
others interests followed him through the allotment 
of earthly experience. 

In 1807 he married Amy Wilkinson, a union that 
was marked by domestic felicity throughout. As a 
son, husband and father, he is remembered by very 
many for loyalty and fidelity in every relation. He 
was honest, industrious and virtuous. Truth demands 
that we should testify that he was a man of strict 
honor and undeviating principle, qualities which in 
the imperfection of this w'orld's institutions do not 
always contribute to pecuniary advancement. 

In estimating character it is well for us to bear in 
mind the foundation stones on which it is erected. 
A good man is simply the prelude of righteousness _ 
But that which our friend prized most was the blessed 
religion of our Saviour Christ. In mature life a gen- 
uine religious experience called him to unite with the 
Methodist church, to whose doctrines he was warmly 
attached, and whose faith he adorned with a meek 
and pra}'erful life. The spirit of unpretentious, 
cheerful piety which distinguished him amidst the 
more active scenes of life, did not forsake him through 
lingering months of pain and distress ; and it strik- 
ingly displayed itself through the period of his decline. 
Death entered his chamber and was welcomed by him 
as a messenger from the throne of mercy, sent to tell 


liim that the season of earthly discipHne and labor 
Avas over, and that his mansion, eternal in the heavens, 
was preparing by the Lord that he faithfully served. 
The chamber of sickness was transfigured into the 
Christian's ascension room, and the pale messenger 
Avas foiled by the victory of faith, saying, " Death ! 
I am not thine ! I know in whom I believe ; thou art 
simply my door-keeper to the land of immortal 
blessedness." With another of the true sons of God 
he could sing, in exulting lays: — 

" That more and more a providence 
Of love is understood, 
Making the spring of time and sense 
Sweet with eternal good." 

■' That death seems but a co\ered way 
Which opens into light. 
Wherein no blinded child can stra\ 
Beyond the father's sight." 

When the sun in the heavens had ceased shining, 
when the stars became dim, and while the death-damp 
was gathering, the inner man clothed in the spiritual 
body, yet lisped the fond farewell — '"Peace and J^or." 
And thus repose came to the weary body — rest to 
the emancipated soul. 

•■ Spirit I thy labor is o'er I 

Thy time of probation is run. 
Thy steps are now bound for the untrodden shore 
And the race of immortals begun. 

'• Spirit I look not on the strife ; 

Or the pleasures of earth with regret. 
Pause not on the threshold of limitless life. 
To mourn for the day that is set. 


•'Spirit! no fetters can bind, 

No wicked have power to molest : 
There the weary, like thee — the wretched, shall find 
A haven, a mansion of rest. 

• Spirit I how bright is tlie road 

F'or which thou art now on the wing! 
Th\ home it will be, with thy Saviour and God. 
Their loud halleluiah to sinsf."' 

Ix Memori.\.m. 

By Rev. Nathan S. Hill. 

Am\' Wilkinson S(JUTH\\tck, wife of Nathan 
Southwick, entered into rest, (Millville, Mas.s.), Sept. 
21, 1856, aged 83 years. 

Ftill of years and ripe in wisdom, this good woman 
justly merits the counsel of Solomon, " Give her of 
the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise 
her in the gates." Not that this mother in Israel ever 
desired words of eulogy to be written in her behalf, 
for the thought never entered her mind. But when a 
life endeared to very many souls passes on and out of 
mortal ken, it is not amiss to speak of departed worth. 

The eulogist is often tempted to overdraw the pic- 
ture of human life; at the outset, then, I disclaim 
partial aids and extrinsic helps. We have only to 
deal with the presentation of a noble, matronly char- 
acter. I well remember the bowed form looking toward 
the westering horizon ; and as I recall the salient fea- 
tures of her life, I can truly aver that she typified the 
excellent wonan described in the book of Proverbs, 
chapter XXI. Born in Cumberland, R. I., she was 


bred in those manners characteristic of the last century 
— great plainness, force of character, and usefulness 
in life. 

While a young lady she attended worship held in 
the now celebrated " Elder Ballou Meeting House," 
one of the ecclesiastical landmarks in Rhode Island. 
This plain, unpretentious two-story building, with 
shingled exterior, its massive, bolt-upright unpainted 
oaken pews, and whitewashed interior, was erected 
by the celebrated Rev. Maturin Ballou, a French 
Huguenot, about A.D. 1700. Here a colony of 
Huguenots settled, and in this wooden meeting house 
they assembled every Lord's day, from an extensive 
rural circuit. In this connection it may not be out 
of place to mention that from this religious stock 
were descended the Rev. Hosea Ballou, the father of 
modern Universalism, and the Rev. Adin Ballou, now 
full of years, and beloved by all. This venerable 
place of worship has recently acquired greater repu- 
tation owing to the fact that here President Garfield's 
mother, Ann Eliza Ballou, attended church when a 
young woman — she being a lineal descendant of the 
founder and first preacher of the parish. 

From this source she imbibed those principles 
which moulded her subsequent career. Never mak- 
ing a profession of religion, she had what was, and 
is, vastly better, a living soul fed by the spirit of truth 
and holiness. The Sermon on the Mount was the 
guide of her life, and whosoever lays hold of its ever- 
lasting virtues, fails not to win the prize of our high 
calling in Christ Jesus. Her life was a living com- 
mentary of "patient continuance in well doing." 


To strong natural sense, and more than ordinary 
powers of mind, she united great energy, firmness, 
decision and dignity of character. As a friend and 
companion she was sociable, sincere, affectionate and 
attached. As a mother she was riveted to her family 
and endeared to her children by the warmest ties of 
tenderness and maternal solicitude. As a wife she 
evinced the kindest love and duty. Her time was 
entirely devoted to the lasting welfare of her family, 
and within that circle she exhibited the greatest in- 
dustry and desire for their comfort and happiness. 

Indomitable perseverance was a prominent charac- 
teristic, to which were allied simplicity of manners 
and unstinted hospitality. Surviving her beloved hus- 
band by a decade of years, she loved to sit by her 
window and watch the glinting sunset hues round 
about the cherished grassy mound in the cemetery, 
not far removed. The deeper themes of life were 
familiar to her thought. The present and future life 
were connected in her mind as the evening and morn- 
ing of a day ; she looked forward with holy joy to 
the exchange of worlds, in assured hope of being re- 
united to the dear ones who had preceded. She 
contemplated death without dismay, and devoutest 
hope filled her longing soul. The closing scene of 
her earthly existence at once displayed mild and un- 
ostentatious piety and evinced the beneficial tendency 
of those principles that had buoyed her up during the 
trials of life. Amid painful sufferings not a murmur 
escaped her lips. Resigned to the will of God she 
passed within the vale of shadows, leaning on the 


Divine rod and staff, in certainty of the resurrection 
unto eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

In Memoriam. 

By Rev. Nathan S. Hill. 

David Wilkinson Southwick, youngest son of 
Nathan and Amy W. Southwick, passed on and out 
of sight, Sept 18, 1867, aged 50 years. 

When the living presence of virtue is withdrawn 
from human observation, we derive a melancholy 
pleasure from allowing our thoughts to dwell on the 
picture which memory has portrayed on the tablet of 
the heart, and from recalling to view the various ex- 
cellencies which excited our esteem or won our admir- 
ation. Whilst, too, we indulge this sad privilege, we 
rescue from the hands of the spoiler those imperish- 
able qualities of mind and heart which chiefly en- 
deared the lost one to us, and preserve all that has 
power to soothe the pang of separation. 

In adverting to the character of the lamented sub- 
ject of this brief memoir, we feel warranted in saying 
that it was truly Christian. The religious principles 
which he had imbibed in childhood, whilst they proved 
to him a source of consolation and good hope, were 
doubtless, the spring whence flowed the numerous 
virtues which adorned his life. His was not the noisy 
demonstrative type of religion, pitched to the key- 
note of other men's experiences, but true inwardness 
of life — the indwelling light seeking expression by 


inherent righteousness — in a word, not profession 
before men, but possession of vital rehgion in the 
sight of God and holy angels that do His will. With 
our beloved Whittier he could sing: — 

" To do Thj will is more than praise. 
As words are less than deeds : 
And simple trust can find Thj ways, 
We miss with chart of creeds. 

■• Our Friend, our Brother, and our Lord, 
What may Thy service be '^ 
Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word, 
But simply follow Thee." 

Early instructed in the path of righteousness, our 
friend evinced those qualities of mind, heart and soul 
that made him foremost in every good work. Accord- 
ing to the Christian revelation, and according to the 
example of Christ, we live when we are true to our- 
selves as moral, spiritual, immortal beings. To live 
in the best sense which the Gospel presents, is to 
cherish high aims and pure purposes ; to feel that we 
have souls and treat them worthily, and to conserve 
the interests of humanity. Because our friend was 
actuated by these noble ideals it is fitting that we 
offer a brief word as to his life and work. 

He was born in the " Quaker City," near the " old 
homestead" from whence emanated a large branch of 
the Southwick family. It soon became manifest that 
the lad was fond of study and the best of good books ; 
but the hampering conditions of those days were not 
favorable to extended mental culture. Work on the 
farm and a few months schooling constituted the 


educational outfit. But with these meagre advantages 
he was not content, and thereupon commenced a 
course of self-education. How wisely and well he 
succeeded, is testified by those who said he was thor- 
oughly informed on every subject. In the village 
Lyceum he became a proficient debater, never espous- 
ing a theme that his conscience questioned. After 
making progress in the study of books, he next 
visited the literary savans of Boston and Cambridge, 
and was on intimate terms with the Faculty of Amherst 
College. For quite a while he was a correspondent 
of the Woonsocket Patriot, a paper that enjoyed the 
largest circulation in the compact state of Rhode 

Those who witnessed his every-day career were 
aware of the purity and sanctity of spirit and of life, 
no less manifest and impressive in his earlier than in 
his later years. In his own consciousness he was ever 
within temple gates and on holy ground. While en- 
gaged in artisan pursuits or tilling the soil he lived in 
a world all his own, holding converse with the great 
men of the past, or meditating themes propounded 
by the leaders of modern opinion. Poetry, painting 
and sculpture opened vistas of thought and sources 
of knowledge that enabled him to pursue studies 
under most disparaging circumstances. While living 
in an ideal world his vision was not closed to the 
duties of the ever living present, for his heart ever 
beat warmly in behalf of humanity. In earlier days 
when to espouse the Abolition Movement, the Tem- 
perance Reform, and other philanthropic activities 


was to be branded as a come-outer ; but none the 
less did our friend lend sympathy and co-operation, 
for duty urged, with compeUing force, enrollment 
among the v^anguards of social and political progress. 
In behalf of truth and right he was content to stand 
where God and conscience had prepared the way. 
But with this earnest boldness in the right, one saw 
blended a meekness and gentleness rarely witnessed 
among men. 

There was one characteristic — nay we may call it 
the guiding star of his destiny — Aspiration. Never 
content with past achievement, a laudible ambition 
inspired to redoubled progress. In the midst of a 
useful career the life endeared to so many was sud- 
denly cut short. Why, we cannot discern. But in the 
spirit of the larger hope begotten of Christ, we are 
assured that every one who goes from us to the world 
of light goes holding an invisible chain of love by 
which to draw us there. Beyond the storms and dark- 
ness of mortality ; beyond this mysterious drama of 
sin, disappointment, toil, privation, sorrow and the 
grave, we behold the transporting scenes of that spirit 
land, destined to be the final inheritance of all the 
countless millions who have been, or will yet be, 
created subject to misery and death here, that they 
may be trained up for the more exquisite enjoyment 
of God hereafter. 

The soul has been called into existence to soar up- 
wards when the body goes back to its original ele- 
ments, to span unlimited space and measure endless 
ages, to travel the broad and boundless of a destiny 


that has no end. The broken purposes that fail on 
earth are carried out hereafter, and the worn, shat- 
tered banner of humanity, torn and drooping here. 
is planted again hereafter upon a happier shore. 

••To Heaven is gathered one by one. 
In its capacious breast, 
All that is pure and permanent 
And beautiful and blest. 

'• The family is scattered yet, 

Though of one home and heart : 
Part militant in earthly gloom. 
In heavenly glory part. 

■• But who can speak the rapture when 
The number is complete ; 
And all the children sundered now 
Around one Father meet.' 

'■ One fold, one Shepherd, one employ; 
One everlasting home. 
Our Father's house, from whose dear rest 
No wanderer e'er shall roam."

In Memoriam. 

By Rev. Nathan S. Hill. 

Mrs. Rebecca Bowditch Southwick, wife of 
William Southwick, passed from things visible to 
things invisible, May 23, 18 16, aged 29 years. 

An intimate friend at the time of her decease, tes- 
tified as follows: — "The premature death of this es- 
timable lady, is a subject of deep affliction to her 
family and friends. She died with animated hopes 
of a happy futurity." 

When the earthly setting of a human life is removed 
from sight, we treasure all that made existence desir- 
able or happy. Although our friend had scarcely 
reached the number of years allotted to a generation ; 
yet the quality was of the highest order. To a mind 
imusually bright and active, there were added moral 
qualities and personal beauty that enhanced the value 
of her life. Keenness and vivacity, were prominent 
qualities, while in the domain of the higher life there 
was an innate consciousness of spiritual virtues. In- 
sight and outsight ever witnessed the bright side of 
things and referred the guidance of life and' the des- 
tiny of man to the Eternal Goodness. Living in such 
an atmosphere, departure from this world in unfolding 
womanhood was welcomed as the angel of God sent 
for beneficient purposes. The immediate cause 
of her demise was owing to a pestilential fever that 
devastated nearly every household of the neighbor- 
hood and which she contracted in faithful performance 
of Christian duty at the bed-side of the sick and dy- 



ing. When prostrated, the faith that had served in 
the active sphere of life was all-sufficient and brought 
its exceeding great reward — the open vision and the 
company of the dear departed. With yearning love 
did she await the dissolution of the earthly taber- 
nacle, and so impressed beholders as to produce the 
conviction that what we call death is not the end but 
the glory of going on. 

•'God giveth quietness at last! 
The common way once more is passed 
From pleading tears and lingerings fond 
To fuller life and love beyond. 

•' What to shut eyes hath God revealed? 
What hear the ears that death has sealed.'' 
What undreamed beauty passing show 
Requites the loss of all we know.^ 

■' O silent land to which we move ! 
Enough if then alone we love. 
And mortal need can ne'er outgrow 
What it is wanting to bestow. 

•' O pure soul! from that far-off shore 
Float some sweet song the waters o'er : 
Our faith confirm, our fears dispel, 
With the dear voice we love so well."

wick, died on the 29th of April, at her residence in 
Grantville, Mass., in the 75th year of her age. 

All survivors of the old abolition band will remem- 
ber her as one of the very earliest, the noblest, and 
the most faithful of that small army of moral combat- 
ants who fought so bravely and perserveringly for the 
deliverance of the downtrodden. Mrs. Southwick 
was born and educated in the Society of Friends, and 
to their calmness of demeanor she added indomitable 
persistance in the path of duty. 

One of the most exciting affairs that ever occurred 
in Boston was known as the Baltimore Slave Case. 
Two girls had escaped in a Boston vessel, and when 
about to be carried back, were brought out by a writ 
of habeas corpus. All Boston was in a ferment, for 
and against the fugitives. The commercial world were 
determined that this Southern property should be re- 
stored to the white claimants, and the abolitionists 
were determined that this Southern property should 
be restored to the white claimants, and the abolitionists 
were determined that it should remain in the posses- 
sion of the original owners, until a "bill of sale from 
the Almighty" could be produced. The well-known 
" Father Snowdon" was then alive, and by his vigi- 
lance and ingenious arrangements, efficiently aided 
by Mrs. Southwick, the slaves were, at a given signal, 
spirited away from the crowded court-room, and con- 
veyed out of the city. The agent of the slaveholders 
happened to be standing near Mrs. Southwick, and 
while he was gazing in astonishment at the empty 
space where the fugitives had been an instant before, 


she turned her large gray eyes upon him, and said 
very calmly, "Thy prey hath escaped thee." 

Wherever working or thinking was to be done for 
the advancement of our righteous cause, there was 
Thankful Southwick, ever ready with wise counsel 
and energetic action. She and her excellent husband 
were among the very first to sustain Garrison in his 
unequal contest with the strong Goliah of slavery. 
At that time they were in affluent circumstances, and 
their money was poured forth freely for the unpopu- 
lar cause, which had as yet found no adherents among 
the rich. Their commodious and every-way com- 
fortable house was a caravansary for fugitive slaves 
and for anti-slavery pilgrims from all parts of the 
country. At the anniversary meetings, when most of 
the city abolitionists were anxious to have for their 
guests Friend Whittier, or Angelina Grimke, or Theo- 
dore Weld, or Hon. Mr. Birney, or George Thompson, 
or some other lions of the cause, Joseph and Thank- 
ful Southwick were quietly looking about for such 
anti-slavery brothers and sisters as were too little 
known to be likely to receive invitations. And 
through all their long and honorable lives this worth}- 
couple retained the same characteristics. Always 
kindly and unpretending, clear-sighted to perceive 
the right, and faithful in following it, wheresoever it 
might lead. They were upright in all their dealings 
with the world, tender and true in the relations of 
private life, and the memory they have left is a ben- 
ediction. — Lydia Maria Child, in Anti-Slavery Stand-

Henry Powers, Jr., son of Henry and Elizabeth 
(Southwick),was born Nov. 28, 18 13. He was tall and 
well-formed and a very fine looking man. He was 
working for a Mrs. Haden (widow), who lived on 
George Hill, at Grafton, Worcester Co., Mass. Mrs. 
Haden and family esteemed Henry very highly. 
There lived near Mrs. Haden's, a Mr. Brooks, a shoe- 
maker, a very quarrelsome, meddlesome man ; his 
boys were in the habit of stealing Mrs. Haden's fruit, 
and Brooks accused Powers of throwing apples at his 
boys when they were trespassing, but it was proven 
in court that it was not Powers that threw apples at 
the boys. 

Brooks went to Mrs. Haden's, Oct. 30, 1835, and 
told Henry Powers that he had come to have a 
settlement ; Powers told him he had nothing to settle ; 
further conversation followed and Brooks attempted 
to enter the barn, when Mr. Powers pushed him out 
and told him to go home. Mrs. Haden knowing that 
Brooks was about the barn, went and told him she 
wished he would go home. She told Powers that he 
had better come to the house as soon as he had fin- 
ished the job which he was at, which was painting a 
plough. Powers started for the house, which was on 
the opposite side of the road from the barn, and it 
was the testimony of those who saw the whole tran- 
saction that Powers passed Brooks quietly, not dream- 
ing of Brook's murderous intent, but just as Powers 
passed Brooks, the latter struck a back-handed blow 
with a knife which he held in his hand behind him ; 
the knife entered Power's neck under the ear. Powers 


turned towards Brooks and putting up his arms said, 
"pray do not use a knife," but Brooks continued his 
blows, stabbing him in the breast and arms. Powers 
then started and walked a few steps towards the house. 
Brooks followed and stabbed him twice in the back of 
the neck. Powers stepped a few steps and fell, and as 
he fell Brooks stepped up to him and kicked him and 
said, " Damn you, if you have not got enough I will give 
you more." Mrs. Haden and her daughters and 
three or four others witnessed the whole transaction. 
Mrs. Haden rushed to his assistance, but he breathed 
only once or twice after she reached him. The doc- 
tors who examined his wounds stated that there were 
five wounds, either one of which would have proved 
fatal. Brooks helped carry him into the house and 
then went home and told his wife he had killed Pow- 
ers ; she replied, "I begged of you not to carry a 
knife." The men who worked in the shop with Brooks 
knew he intended to have a fight with Powers, and 
were out on an eminence to witness the affair. 

He had ground a shoe knife for the purpose, grind- 
ing the back as well as front. Powers was a ver}' 
powerful man and Brooks was a very small man, and 
if Powers had known of his intentions he could easil}' 
have defended himself, and if he wanted to fight 
could have whipped three like Brooks. Powers was 
a member of the Society of Friends, and was at a 
friend's house at Northbridge, only the Sunday be- 
fore, and the subject of fighting came up, and Powers 
stated that he scorned fighting and that he would 
sooner run than fight. His body was brought to his 


father's in Berlin, and the funeral was at the Friend's 
meeting house in Bolton, the next day. His father 
made a most impressive prayer ; he prayed for his 
son's murderer and hoped the government would be 
lenient and show him mercy ; prayed that he might 
not be executed ; there was hardly a dry eye in the 
vast audience. Brooks was arrested, tried and sen- 
tenced to six years in the state prison. He served 
but four years of the six and was pardoned out. 
Brooks had shot a man previous to this murder. He 
was out hunting with another man and they saw a squir- 
rel. His companion was about to shoot the squirrel 
when Brooks told him not to fire as he wanted to 
shoot it. His companion shot the squirrel and 
Brooks shot at him : the shot passed through his side, 
but as the man was not killed there was nothing done 
about it. 

When Henry Powers was killed, the family consis- 
ted of father, mother, brother and four sisters. Five 
months after, the mother mourned herself to death ; 
seven years after the father died and ten years after 
one sister died ; and eleven years from Henry Power's 
death, two more of the sisters died, leaving the young- 
est sister a remnant of a once happy family.

"Honor To Whom Honor Is Due." 

I have been for a long time desirous that the pub- 
lic might be made acquainted with certain acts in the 
life of Philadelphia (Southwick) Cook, a lady now 


about 73 years of age, residing at Millville, Worces- 
ter Co., Mass. However unassuming may be her 
pretensions and however little she may be at present 
known to fame, it is the opinion of the writer of this, 
that she, more than any other person, is entitled to the 
honor of having given the first impulse to the cause 
of temperance in this country. 

It was in the year 1 822, now twenty years ago, when 
the evil of intemperance overshadowed this land 
as a deep darkness ; when the fumes of alcohol arose 
alike from the sideboards of the affluent and the 
cupboards of the indigent ; when he who drank was 
honored, and he who refrained was ridiculed ; when 
the wise and the good of the land looked upon the 
scene around them without being sensible of the 
magnitude of the evil, or despaired of doing any- 
thing to stop its devastating course. It was at this pe- 
riod that the subject of this article, unaided and 
unfriended, steps forth as a bold and fearless champion 
in the cause of total abstinence ; but at that early day 
she boldly assumed the ground now advocated by 
the more ardent and active in the cause, her motto 
then was "Touch not, taste not," and so firm, so de- 
cided, so zealous was she, that many thought her not 
in her right mind. She was unceasing in her efforts ; 
she wrote, she travelled, she talked, she warned, ex- 
horted, entreated and prayed ; she visited from house 
to house, and from village to village, urging all whom 
she could induce to listen, to refrain from the use of 
intoxicating drinks, or, as she was in the habit of 
calling it, "the liquid fire." But what renders her 


course the more remarkable and praiseworth)' is, that 
she was not in a situation to command money to pa}- 
her expenses in her travels on these errands of mercy, 
but had to labor by the day at the trade of a tailoress, 
at small wages, in order to earn a little money for 
the above purpose, and when she had thus accumu- 
lated a small sum, she would immediately go forth 
to battle in the cause. She succeeded at an^ early 
day in forming a society in her own neighborhood, 
consisting of a few females, but she plainly saw that 
in order to accomplish any great good it was neces- 
ary to enlist the wise, the philanthropic and influential 
of the land. 

For this purpose she visited the venerable Moses 
Brown at Providence. He acknowledged the evil 
and deplored it, but despaired of doing anything to 
stop its devastating progress. She also visited Gover- 
nor Fenner, but met with little encouragement except 
kind words and wishes. She next visited Boston and 
Quincy, and called on John Quincy Adams, then presi- 
dent of the United States, who was on a visit to his 
native town. In listening to her account of her visit 
to that remarkable man, I was strongly impressed 
with the candor, meekness and simplicity which he ob- 
served in the interview. Mrs. Cook remarked that 
he received her very kindly and listened attentiveh', 
remarking in reply that he did not agree with her 
fully, that he had been in the habit of occasional!)- 
drinking wine, and he had observed no bad effects 
from it. She rejoined, urging the influence of his 
example, etc., and concluded by saying "I advise 


thee to leave it ofif entirely." He thanked her, and 
upon her taking leave, he assured her that he would 
take the subject into serious consideration. She vis- 
ited many other persons of influence, such as ministers 
of the Gospel, and urged the importance of tlie sub- 
ject and entreated them to preach upon it. Her 
efforts apparently met with little success, nor was 
there any cause for a less sanguine mind than hers 
to hope for any great good from these efforts until 
about four years after she commenced, when she re- 
ceived from Boston the first copy of a temperance 
newspaper called the National Philantkropist, which 
had been established by an association of a few gen- 
tleman in that city. Upon receiving this paper she 
remarked that if the joy of Columbus at the first 
sight of land in the new world after his many trials, 
fatigues and disappointments was great, it surely was 
not greater than hers at this first dawning of a glorious 
light upon the temperance cause. Of course we can- 
not at this time determine precisely how much the 
world is indebted to this woman for the glorious re- 
sults of the cause of temperance, but we think we may 
safely conclude, when we recall her visits to a Brown, 
an Adams and a Fenner, and many others, the influ- 
ential and the philanthropic of the country, that to 
her more than any other person are we all indebted 
for giving \\\& first impulse to this glorious undertak- 
ing, and that she is entitled to the thanks and gratitude 
of every well wisher to mankind. Mrs. Cook has 
now resting upon her the weight of seventy-three 
winters, and although she has undergone many hard- 


ships, much laborious toil and anxiety of mind, many 
thanks for the blessings of a temperate life, her mind 
is as clear and unclouded and her nerves as steady as 
when she first unfurled the banner of "Total absti- 
nence" and steps forth single handed to battle against 
the hosts of the army of King Alcohol. Long may 
she live and long may she be enabled to continue her 
warfare in that glorious cause, even till every vestige 
of drunkeness and inebriety is banished from our 
land. Hoping she may meet whenever she goes 
(what is more highly to be prized than gold or silver) 
the welcome of " well done, good and faithful servant," 
and that meed of applause which always attends on 
virtuous and philanthropic exertions, is the sincere 
hope and desire of 

P. S. Thayer.

The venerable DANIEL FarNUM of Northbridge, 
the oldest man in that town or vicinity, departed this 
life Dec. 10, 1879, aged 95 years and 18 days. The de- 
ceased was of the fifth generation in descent from 
John Farnum, an early settler at the ancient town seat 
in Mendon, and a little later in the southerly part of 
Uxbridge. The lineage is John, Moses, Moses, David. 
Daniel. His grandfather, Moses, was an eminent 
minister in the Society of Friends, whose memory is 
still fragrant in many bosoms. The deceased has 
dwelt through all the mature part of his long life, in 
Northbridge, near the border of Uxbridge. He was 
the oldest son of a large family, and is survived only 
by his youngest brother, Samuel J. Farnum, formerly 
mayor of Newburg, N.Y., now resident in or near 
Poughkeepsie, and past his three score and ten. The 
wife of his youth preceded him into the higher life 
about seven years ago. Two sons and a daughter 
with their companions, and numerous grandchildren, 
were privileged to soothe and cheer his old age, and to 
nourish him tenderly at his bedside in his last sickness. 

He was born with a good constitution, which he 
preserv'cd well by regular and temperate habits, expe- 
riencing but little sickness, and retaining his faculties 
in remarkable vigor till within the last year. His was 
emphatically a sound mind in a sound body; he was 


characterized for sound common sense, a strong sen- 
timent of justice and honesty, insistence on his own 
rights, and respect for those of others ; economy, 
simphcity, and hospitahty in domestic affairs ; was 
provident, faithful, and kind in the family circle ; a 
peaceable, prudent, and accommodating neighbor ; 
a serviceable, judicious, and trustworthy townsman, 
honored with the principal municipal offices, includ- 
ing those of selectman and representative in the legis- 
lature; a reliable counselor in financial matters; a 
lover of his country and its liberties ; a firm opposer 
of slavery and oppression ; sparing in religious pro- 
fessions ; of broad tolerance towards all denomina- 
tions ; liberal in theology, and a steadfast hoper in 
the final triumph of good over evil. These were 
qualities and characteristics which in the deceased 
overshadowed the incidental imperfections common 
to human nature. He was warmly attached to the 
interests of the town, and was a constant attendant on 
town meetings, the last one he attended being in 1878, 
when in his 94th year. Among the positions of pub- 
lic financial trust he occupied, was that of director in 
the Blackstone Bank of Uxbridge, over twenty years. 
He had been expecting his departure for three years, 
expressed his entire resignation to the Divine disposal, 
and passed away in the confident assurance of the 
life everlasting. Appropriate funeral honors were 
paid to his memory and remains, at his late residence, 
the 13th, with ministrations by Rev. Geo. S. Ball of 
Upton, Rev. Adin Ballou of Hopedale, and now his 
mortal part sleeps with the dust of his ancestors in 


Friends' Cemetery at South Uxbridge. All the num- 
erous descendants of the deceased were present at 
the funeral, except the four great grandchildren.

to speak and write the English and French languages 
correctly. He was apprenticed at thirteen years of 
age to learn the wool carding, cloth dressing and dye- 
ing business. When he was seventeen years of age, 
his employer, Judge Moore, of Champlain Village, 
N.Y., sent him to take charge of a new mill near 
Chambly, Canada. Afterwards Judge Moore built 
another mill at Mont St. Hilaire, Canada and admitted 
him as a partner in the business, and at the death of 
Judge Moore he purchased this property of the heirs. 
He was married to Miss Eliza Andres, Feb. 5, 1827. 
she was the daughter of Samuel Andres, of L'acadie, 
Huntingdon Co., 21 miles S. E. of Montreal. May 
17, 1827, he settled at Mont St. Hiliare ; his wife and 
himself being in perfect accord he felt all the more 
encouraged in his enterprises and efforts to perfect 
his inventions. They were noted for their hospitality, 
far and wide. 


Home ! home ! at last I've found thee ! 

Thou dearest spot on earth : 
Each nook and tree around thee 

And e'en the rough old hearth. 
Are dearer now than ever, 

Since far from thee and thine 
I've roamed o'er hill and river; 

O! there's no home like mine I — M. b. s. 


He invented many improvements in the flax man- 
ufacture, which are acknowledged to be the best in 
use and for which patents were obtained by him in 
Canada and the U. S., he also obtained a patent for 
desiccating meats and vegetables, which was approved 
by Prof Horseman, of Cambridge, Mass. He sent 
specimens of dried meats, apples, potatoes, etc., to 
the Paris Exposition, for which a bronze medal was 
awarded to him, and in Canada a silver medal was 
awarded to him by the Canadian government. His 
widow has now (1881), potatoes which were dried 
26 years ago and are as good and fresh as when dried ; 
by putting hot water on it sufficient to moisten it, in 
a minute it will be mashed potatoes, and most excel- 
lent to eat. For his mechanical skill and inventive 
genius he was made an honorary member of the Mon- 
treal Mechanics' Institute, in 1854. He was in busi- 
ness in St. Hilaire 57 years, and held a commission 
for the local Courts, for many years. He held office 
and performed many duties in the municipality, hold- 
ing the rank of Major in the Canadian Militia for 
many years with honor. 

About ten years before his death he had a sun- 
stroke, from which he never fully recovered. He died 
October 16, 1879, of apoplexy, and was buried in 
Mount Royal Cemetery, Montreal, Lot 1257, Sec- 
tion B.

1517. Nathan Southwick*, born Jan. 31, 1845; was a Universalist 
preacher in Brooklyn, N. Y., in i88o. 

Rev. Nathan Southwick Hill was born in the 
town of Woonsocket, R. I., Jan. 24, 1846. It being 
a manufacturing centre, considerable attention had 
been paid to educational facilities, of which Mr. Hill 
availed himself, passing through the different grades 
and completing the High School course of study at 17 


years of age. Subsequently he studied at Scholfield'.s 
Commercial College, in Providence, R.I. In 1869 
he resolved to prepare for the Christian ministry, and 
for this purpose he entered the Divinity School con- 
nected with Tufts' College, four miles from Boston, 
under control of the Universalist Church. 

Naturally studious and fond of good books, school 
exercises were never irksome, and he was never so 
happy as when some abstruse problem was satisfac- 
torily solved. One of his earliest characteristics was 
a fondness to see how his playthings were made ; he 
was never satisfied to take this knowledge at second 
hand, but he must take to pieces and then re-construct ; 
and we may add that in mature life this tendency still 
lingers and is manifest in his chosen work. Before 
he was eleven years old he had twice read the New 
Testament ; and without any solicitation he presented 
himself to his venerable pastor, the late lamented Rev. 
John Boyden, for membership in the Universalist 
church of his native town. After a rigid examination 
on the entire New Testament he was accepted, and 
Christmas day 1858, witnessed his reception into the 
Church of Christ, of which he continues a consistent 
professor, and a staunch advocate of Liberal Chris- 

January i, 1878, he received and accepted an invi- 
tation to the pastorate of the Third Universalist 
Church, Brooklyn, N.Y., which position he occupied 
for two years. When his resignation became known 
the Brooklyn Star averred: "We regret to learn that 
Rev. Nathan S. Hill is about to sever his connection 


as pastor of the Church of the Reconcihation. Dur- 
ing the reverend gentleman's stay in Brooklyn, he has 
drawn around him by a sort of magnetic influence a 
host of friends who wish him success wherever he may 


The Rev. C. H. Leonard, D. D., of Tufts College 

says of him: "We gladly commend him as a chris- 
tian man and devoted student. While in college his 
whole course was marked by conscientious study and 
religious devotion. We are glad to say, also, that 
since he left the formal study of the Divinity School, 
he has not relaxed in earnestness, but has studied 
under the direction, to some extent, of his old teach- 

The Hon. L. W. Ballou, M. C, a valued friend has 
a kindly word. "It gives me great pleasure to com- 
mend Rev. Nathan S. Hill, as a most worthy, consci- 
entious, upright christian minister, with social qualities 
of a high order, a devoted student, industrious and 
faithful to all the duties of his profession, and whose 
moral character and conversation have been exemplary 
from his youth."

Dr. Moses Daniels Southwick, son of George 
and Sallie (Daniels) Southwick, of Mendon, Mass., 
was born July 9, 1805. His early days were spent on 
a farm. His preparation for college was made under 
the instruction of Rev. Simeon Doggett, of his native 
town. He passed through a regular collegiate course 
at Brown University, Providence, R. I., and studied 
with Dr. Usher Parsons, receiving his medical diploma 
from the Brunswick Medical School, Maine. Being 
thus thoroughly grounded in his profession, he com- 
menced practice in Welfleet, Mass., where he remained 
three years. From there he removed to Millville, 
Blackstone, Mass., and settled for the remainder of 
his life, about forty years. He was a man of sterling 
character ; of vigorous powers of mind ; well balanced, 
and of remarkably even temperament. Among his 


prominent traits were his strong reasoning faculties ; 
his sound judgment and good common sense, always 
manifested by his fidelity to principle ; and a firm 
adherence to his convictions of right and duty. There 
was no man in the community whose opinion was 
more respected, or better entitled to respect, than his. 
The purity of his motives and his steady consistent 
pursuit of all objects approved by his sense of right 
and justice, were marked attributes in his character. 
In public life he has at times held most of the town 
offices, and was twice elected to the Massachusetts 
State Senate, where he served with honor to himself 
and the towns he represented. He was an active 
member, and for two years President of the Worcester 
District Medical Society. He was officially connected 
with the Massachusetts Temperance Union, and was 
a staunch advocate and efficient worker in this most 
important field. In his professional capacity he was 
able, faithful, always prompt in his engagements, kind 
and attentive to his patients and sincere and upright 
in his counsels. During the later part of his life he 
was an active member of the Society of Friends, hon- 
ored and highly esteemed. He died June 9, 1875.

Winans of Poughkeepsie. He learned the trade of 
a tanner of his father. 

In 1 8 14, his father Zadock purchased a landed prop- 
erty with a good water power and built thereon a 


tannery and put his son Henry in possession oi it to 
do the business as partners. About 1 820, he (Zadock ) 
sold to his son Henry the entire business, and Zadock 
bought a property about three miles down the stream, 
called the Beerskill, and erected in 1821 a tannery 
at that place. A few years after, Henry's tannery 
was burned, and he felt very discouraged, but the 
neighbors held him in such esteem that they clubbed 
together and delivered the lumber necessary to erect 
a new tannery, which he promptly did and was suc- 
cessful as a tanner. He was elected many times to 
town offices ; was a very industrious and upright man, 
and highly esteemed for his sterling integrity and 
independence of character. He was a very active 
and efficient anti-mason after the murder of William 
Morgan by the Free Masons. He was a practical 
temperance man and a friend to the poor ; also a 
plain straight Foxite Quaker. He reared a large and 
respectable family of children who revere his memory. 
He died March 26, 1871, aged about 80 years. He 
was buried in the Friends' burying ground at Green- 
field in the town of Wawarsing, Ulster Co., N.Y.

after marriage. His wife was a most lovely person, 
beautiful, amiable, good and intelligent. When court- 
ing his wife, he rode from Poughkeepsie in a single

hundred miles; but she was a prize worth going that

about five years William withdrew and Stephen also, 
then Edward carried on the business until 1861, when

Sarah Southwick, daughter of Zadock and Eliz- 
abeth (Carpenter) Southwick, was a person of supe- 
rior education and most excellent intellectual qualities. 
She received a part of her education at John Comly's 
boarding school in Pennsylvania, not far from Phila- 
delphia. Her physical constitution was never very 
vigorous and strong, consequently she gave much 
attention to the laws of health and the best and most 
natural remedies for disease, and by so doing lived 
many years longer than she otherwise would have 
done. She was very decided against the use of cal- 
omel, never using it herself and advising her family 
not to use it. She was one of the earliest abolitionists, 
and wrote many articles for the press and was a 
zealous advocate for equal rights before the law for 
the people of all nations and colors. She was a con- 
scientious and consistent Friend or Quaker, and 
sometimes spoke in meeting very acceptably ; she 
was a warm advocate of home education and thought 
mothers should be more careful to practice what 
they preached, and by so doing would materially aid 
in building up good characters. Her life was worthy 
of imitation. She was always kind and considerate for 


the poor, particularly the worthy poor, by rendering 
timely aid in their hour of distress. It is the good 
mothers who are the makers of good men and women. 
She was a most zealous Anti-Masonic advocate, and 
said that if Masonry was good it need not be sworn 
to, and their light should not be hid under a bushel, 
and that true benevolence should assist all good people 
without being bound by oath to assist a brother Mason, 
only because he was a Mason. She was highly 
esteemed by all who knew her, and none knew her 
but to praise. She was a very industricms person, 
and although not having a strong constitution, she 
accomplished a great amount of work by her great 
method, both physical and mental. One of her mot- 
tos was, "be just and fear not;" another was, "right 
was right through all the world should err." She 
was one of the most faithful of mothers, and always 
said she wished to leave her children the best of 
legacies, viz. : a good education, both by example 
and precept. 

John Caller was a person of remarkable memory 
and strength of mind, he was a great reader. His 
parents dying when he was very young, he was appren- 
ticed to a saddler and harness maker, a Quaker named 
James Jenkins, at Pleasant Valley, Ulster Co., N. Y. 
After his marriage he found that the business did not 
agree with him, he quit it and carried on a small farm, 
and grocery store, at Poughkeepsie, N.Y., for a few 
years, and bought a larger farm and quit store keep- 
ing ; and in 1835 he sold it and engaged in freighting 



business to New York city. He was afterwards elected 
as Magistrate of Poughkeepsie for several years.

Adna H. Southwick was born April 30, 1803, 
and was 20 years old when his father Zadock died 
(in 1823). He being the oldest son at home, was 
given the charge of the business, consisting of the 
Franklin sole leather tannery, capable of tanning 
12,000 hides per year ; a saw mill; a store of general 
merchandise ; a shoe shop ; a farm, etc., and was to 
pay the four younger children their legacies and finish 
their education, and take care of his mother; all of 
which he faithfully did. By his untiring energy and 
good judgement, with the aid of his older brother, he 
was able in 1831 to buy a large landed property of 
500 acres of beautiful valley land at a place called 
" Napanoch," with a great water power, where he built 
a superb grist and flouring mill, costing $20,000, and 


an axe and edge tool factory, where they made 200 
dozen axes per day, and other tools and machinery. 
He then built a very large stone sole leather tannery, 
200 feet long, 60 feet wide, and three stories high, which 
with the machinery cost $54,000 ; its capacity was 
25,000 hides, i. e., 50,000 sides of sole leather per 
year. He then took into partnership his brothers 
Richard and George and built a large store for selling 
general merchandise for their help. They built a 
hotel, and being near the Delaware and Hudson Canal, 
had two canal boats and about twenty-five teams to 
haul bark and do other work. They also had a 
wagon maker's shop, shoe factory, tailor shop, and 
about twenty-five dwelling houses ; but a complica- 
tion of disasters befel them, and in the financial tor- 
nado of 1837 they were compelled to surrender. 
Adna H. with his brother Stephen then went to 
Galveston, Texas, taking with them a frame for a large 
building which they erected at Galveston, which sub- 
sequently became very valuable as the city grew. 
Adna H. then sold out to his brother Stephen and 
returned to his family, who did not go with him. He 
then engaged in several enterprises and finally became 
a real estate broker in New York City, dying Feb. ii, 
1875. His career was a very checkered one, but 
always marked with great energy of character.

Emma D. Southwick', (Philip^ Edward', Joseph*, 
Lawrence^ DanieP, Lawrence'), daughter of Philip R. 
and Amelia (Dexter), born April 5, 1834; married, 
in Westford, Mass., June 28, 1880, Dr. J. Bernard 
Brinton, of Philadelphia. 

Emma D. Southwick, born in 1834, the eldest of 
seven children, attended private schools until she 
entered Bradford Academy, where she spent four years. 
In 1861, she entered the Mansion House Hospital at 
Alexandria, as nurse, the demand at that time being 
very great for care-takers for the sick and otherwise dis- 
abled soldiers who were filling our hospitals. She 
spent nearly a year there in active service, having 
under her care about sixty men at a time ; at first all 


cases of sickness, but for the last months wounded 
men entirely, where a rich and most interesting work 
was opened to her. Then after a vacation at home, 
she found occupation in a ward in Armory Square 
Hospital at Washington, where the nurses were all 
volunteers, and being encouraged to make everything 
as pleasant as possible, the wards were arranged so 
pleasant!)' that many a man said it was like going into 
his mother's room at home. Here she spent nearly 
a year, ministering to many hundred men, there being 
among the younger ones many who called her mother. 
Her schemes for diverting the minds of her patients 
were various and often amusing, not only would she 
introduce games and join in them herself, but she 
would devise something useful for them to do ; and 
as the hospital stockings were never mended when 
sent to the wards, she would get the men together 
each week, and providing needles and yarn, have a 
mending bee. The city people being very kind too, 
entertainments were often gotten up and the patients 
gathered at Miss Southwick's ward, and thus man}' 
tedious hours were saved our crippled boys. Her 
work ceased when the battles of the Wilderness led 
to the opening of hospitals at Fredericksburgh, when 
with two other ladies, securing passes from the sur- 
geon, she went into the field work, first at Fredericks- 
burg, where a general care was given the men lying 
closely together in lO by lOO buildings; and from 
six in the morning until ten at night, there was no 
cessation from dressing woimds, and providing food 
for the sufferers. 


From Fredericksburgh to White House Landing, 
and then up the James River in the 5th and 2d corps, 
she found all she could do, until prostrated with the 
heat, bad water, and over-work, she was taken to 
Alexandria ajid then home. But after a while, in 
1864, she found a field of labor again at Harpers 
Ferry, where she made many improvements, but suf- 
fering severely from chills and fever, she accompanied 
her cousin Mrs. Stephenson and son to South Caro- 
lina, where they spent five or six months on a planta- 
tion on Helena Island ; Miss Southwick acting as 
teacher for two plantations, caring for those up to 
14 years of age in the morning", and the older ones 
every afternoon. 

Here, too, she found scope for other energies, 
nursing the old and sick; feeding the hungry little 
ones left at home for hours together, while their 
mothers were obliged to be at work ; and Sundays 
gathering them in groups to read and sing. They 
made also pleasant trips to Savannah and Charleston 
just after Sherman had made his "march to the sea," 
and saw the first enthusiastic gathering of the colored 
people and the desolation of the southern cities. The 
call for teachers for the Freedmen being very loud, 
Miss Southwick entered that work at Richmond and 
Petersburgh, and was attached to it for about three 

Then in 1868, with an invalid sister, she accom- 
panied a party of ladies through fifteen months' jour- 
neying from Glasgow^ Scotland, to Naples, spending a 
winter in Rome and studying with intense interest the 


wonders of the old world. After this, from 1870 to 
1873, was spent at home. 

Being desirous of attending the Universal Exhibi- 
tion at Vienna, in 1873, Miss Southwick sought and 
obtained a commission to write for the Boston Daily 
Traveller and Conuncrcial Bulletin; and spent seven 
months in Vienna, travelling through Switzerland, 
France and England ; writing letters for the press 
and taking part in the first meeting ever held in 
Hungary, of the Unitarians of that country, England 
and America, and which she considers one of the most 
interesting gatherings ever held, and of which a full 
account was given in the Traveller and Christian 

While at Vienna, the breaking up of our commis- 
sion and generally disgraceful appearance of our 
department, led to a desire on her part to take an 
active place in the Centennial Exhibition, and a }'ear 
before its opening she accepted a position offered her 
(in the office of the Massachusetts state commission) 
where she made use of the knowledge gained, for the 
general good, and as her own work made application 
for space for the building of a log cabin to illustrate life 
in New England, one hundred years ago. The idea 
being to furnish it with articles, and keep it open to 
the public every day ; with six ladies always there 
knitting, spinning, quilting, netting, making lace, etc. ; 
these ladies to change every day, having half of their 
time to themselves and with no expense excepting 
their passage out and back. Then beside the old 
house a modern kitchen where a complete contrast 


would be shown, and an old fashioned dinner prepared 
and sold each day. 

This work being accepted, was successfully carried 
out during the whole exhibition, receiving" (it was 
•estimated) half a million visitors, and giving the 
benefits of the exhibition to one hundred and twenty 
persons, man}' of whom could not have visited Phil- 
adelphia in any other way. Miss Southwick having 
closed her work, went the last of Nov., 1876, to Santa 
Barbara, Cal., and spent the winter with her sister 
Abba (Mrs. G. W. Young), since deceased, but re- 
turned in the spring to take part in the permanent 
exhibition at Philadelphia. And the next spring, in 
April, 1878, she sailed with a party of ladies for a 
long European tour; going out accredited as the 
special correspondent of the Daily Traveller of Bos- 
ton, and landing at Glasgow. She went to Paris for 
the first six weeks of the exhibition ; then through 
Norway, Sweden and Russia, and back to Paris, for 
October and November ; after which the winter was 
spent in Rome, and the spring in Egypt and Palestine : 
a party of four ladies spending holy week in Jeru- 
salem, and twenty days on horse-back to Beirut, then 
to Constantinople and Rome, reaching Paris early in 
July, 1879. Writing up Britain and Normandy, and 
after a tour of England made alone and among the 
peasantry, she sailed Sept. 13, 1879, for New York.

Aaron Southwick is now settled in the town- 
ship of Madison, near Manhattan, in Kansas. He is a 
farmer and publishes a weekly newspaper at Riley 
Center, Riley Co., Kansas. In July, 1838, Aaron 
with his parents moved to Medina Co., Ohio ; they 
lived in various parts of Ohio, till he was 23 years 
old, once, however, moving to Lagrange Co., Indi- 
ana, and residing there four months, when they 
returned to Ohio. In the same year he removed to 
Kalamazoo Co., Mich., where he purchased a farm and 
followed the occupation of farming for several years. 
He sold his farm in Kalamazoo Co., and bought an- 
other in Allegan Co., Mich., to which he moved and 
on which he lived until 1868. In 1868 he sold his 
farm in Allegan Co., and bought another in Kalamazoo 
Co., Mich., where he lived till the spring of 1869. 
That year the Kansas fever became epidemic and he 
again sold his property in Michigan and started for 
Kansas, where he arrived April 24, 1869, and pur- 
chased 160 acres of land in Madison township. He 
has been adding improvements yearly and now has 
a beautiful and comfortable home. The country has 
settled up well and a thrifty village has sprung up 
adjoining his farm.

The late ROYAL SoUTHWiCK had entered upon 
his eighty-second year when " the fatal asterisk of 
death " was set against his name. He was born at 
Uxbridge in this state, September 14, 1795, and was 
a lineal descendant of Lawrence and Cassandra South- 
wick of Salem, Mass.. who were banished from the 


State by the Puritans, in 1659, for believing in Quak- 
erism ; they went to Shelter Island, where they died 
within three days of each other, in the spring of 1660, 
from exposure and privation. They were, previous to 
banishment, fined, whipped and imprisoned for non- 
attendance at the First Church, of Salem. The in- 
herited faith which sustained the heart of the noble 
William Penn, and which inspired the verse of Whittier, 
never lost its hold on Royal Southwick, nor did he 
ever forget the martyrdom which his ancestors suffered 
for the love of truth. It was his practice through 
life to attend the yearly meetings of the Friends or 
Quakers, at Newport, R. I. His father, brother and 
sister were all elders of the Society of Friends. 

In 1826, he married Direxa Claflin, daughter of 
Major John Claflin, of Milford, sister of Horace B- 
and Aaron Claflin, of New York. 

In 1829, when the Lowell Manufacturing Compan}' 
commenced operations here, Mr. Southwick, Alex- 
ander Wright, the Wilson brothers, and others, moved 
to Lowell from Medway, and engaged in the manu- 
facture of carpets. Mr. Southwick took the proces- 
ses of carding and spinning by contract. He remained 
in that company's employ till 1844. and his contract 
proved highly remunerative to him and also to the 

In 1844, he visited England, and informed himself 
thoroughly touching the latest improvements in the 
various processes of the woolen manufacture, that 
had been introduced there. He then purchased a 
large interest in the Baldwin Manufacturing Company 



at North Chelmsford, whose business he conducted 
with signal success for about ten years ; then trans- 
ferred his interest to the Wilton Manufacturing Com- 
pany, and successfully conducted the operations of 
the latter company until near the opening of the 

Outside of manufacturing, he engaged extensively 
in other operations, and was for some years President 
of the Merchants Bank, succeeding Dr. Pillsbury , and 
preceding Mr. Hosford in that office. 

He remained a citizen of Lowell until 1859, when 
he removed to Boston, and continued to reside there 
until his death. During his long abode in Lowell, 
he was prominent in many public movements, and 
exerted himself strenuously in behalf of the Whig 
party, which, in fulfillment of the dying prediction of 
his illustrious friend, Daniel Webster, now lives "only 
in history." 

While cherishing the friendship of Webster, Mr. 
Southwick cherished with still greater fondness the 
friendship of Webster's celebrated Whig rival, Henry 
Clay. For "Harry of the West" he named his first- 
born son. To secure the prize of the Presidency for 
"Harry of the West," he thought no sacrifice of time 
or money too great. And when, in visiting Lowell, 
in October, 1833, Mr. Clay took upon his knee, and 
blessed, and caressed the boy whom his far-off Lowell 
friend had named for him, the fond father's "cup of 
happiness" was full. Endeared as Henry Clay was 
to him, Mr. Southwick felt a natural and just pride, 
(as a Delegate from Massachusetts to the National 


Whig Convention of 1 840), in voting for the nomina- 
tion of Mr. Clay. But it was written in the Book of 
Destiny that Kentucky's greatest son, (loved and 
honored, as he was, above all others, by millions of 
Americans), should never enter the Promised Land 
of Presidential power. Fate, which, with grim irony, 
is forever laughing at the wisest calculations, and 
dashing to the ground the fondest hopes of the chil- 
dren of men, passed both Clay and Webster by, and 
bestowed her laurel crown on William H. Harrison. 

In 1844, it seemed that Mr. Clay's hour had come, 
and the interest felt in his election was as great among 
the Whigs of Lowell as among those of Ashland. 
Mr. Southwick was then a member of the State Senate, 
and seemed likely to become a member of Congress. 
He exerted himself to the utmost for Mr. Clay. The 
telegraph not having been introduced, if the mails 
alone were relied on, the Whigs of Lowell would 
have to remain during the whole night following the 
national election in painful doubt whether they had 
lost or won in the great struggle for power. There 
was then no Times office where the returns could be 
learned from New York — the pivotal State — as now. 
Southwick arranged that instantly upon the arrival at 
the Albany depot in Boston of the New York train at 
ten o'clock on the decisive night, a swift horse should 
receive the returns and bring them, with all speed, to 
Woburn. At Woburn, his own well-known horse, 
"Old Royal," stood ready to bring the returns to 
Lowell. The Democrats also ran a similar " pony 
express "' to the Lozvell Advertiser office. " Old Royal" 



brought the disastrous news of Clay's defeat from 
Woburn to his master in one hour. The excitement 
of that night will never be forgotten by those who 
participated in it, though one and thirty years have 
rolled by since it subsided into silence and calm. 
How grimly and wildly the Democrats rejoiced over 
Mr. Polk's success! How the Whigs mourned — 
many actually wept — over the final defeat of their 
idolized Clay ! None more than Horace Greeley, who 
twenty-eight years later, encountered a similar Water- 
loo. Mr. Southwick could never feel such an inter- 
est in any later contest. 

Having mentioned his Whigism, it is but fair to 
state that his courage and independence far outweighed 
his devotion to party. With his Quakerism he inher- 
ited an earnest opposition of human slavery, and a 
disposition to treat the black man with the same re- 
spect which he bestowed on the white. It was largely 
through his instrumentality that George Thompson, 
the English anti-slavery agitator, visited Lowell, while 
a member of Parliament, in 1834, and spoke, and was 
mobbed in the old City Hall, and he it was who enter- 
tained Mr. Thompson and William Lloyd Garrison 
(who accompanied him) at his house. It required 
real courage for any Democratic or Whig politician, 
in those days, to receive such "firebrands" into his 
house as his guests ; but, a few years later, Mr. South- 
wick indulged his hospitable disposition in a manner 
more daring still. When Frederick Douglass and 
Charles Lennox Remond came to Lowell and addressed 
her people in the same hall in which Mr. Thompson 


had been mobbed, Mr. Southwick took them to his 
house in Tyler street, and extended to them the same 
civilities to which by courtesy they would have been 
entitled had they not been " guilty of a akin not col- 
ored as his own." In spite of the then prevailing 
prejudice against negroes and abolitionists, Mr. South- 
wick, perhaps, lost nothing of official position by 
showing "the courage of his opinions." In 1833, 
1839 and 1840 he served as a member of the House 
of Representatives ; in 1 841 , in the Common Council ; 
in 1844 and 1845, in the State Senate; and for several 
years he was Chairman of the Whig City Committee. 
But for many years prior to his sudden death on Sept. 
23, 1875, he had wholly withdrawn from any form of 
public service. 

Mr. Southwick leaves three sons, Henry Clay and 
John Claflin, New York merchants for many years past, 
the latter of whom appeared as a principal witness for 
the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher in the famous Tilton 
case ; and Royal, now on his return voyage from 
Europe. He also leaves two daughters — Mrs. Jos- 
ephine Mellen Ayer, wife of Dr. James C. Ayer, and 
Miss Edna B. Southwick. His wife, also, survives 
him. He was buried at Mount Auburn, the Rev. 
Dr. DeWitt conducting his funeral services. The 
attendance of relatives was unusually large, and the 
casket which contained his remains, beautiful in death 
as he was in his prime of manhood, seemed buried 
in a bank of flowers. 

Mr. Southwick was a subject of great interest to 
the phrenologist on account of the magnitude of his 


brain. The circumference of his head was the same 
as that of the head of Mr. Webster; and for many 
years he and Webster wore hats made on the same 
block. Very few such heads are recorded in human 
annals. Here and there, in the long procession of 
the centuries, larger heads may have appeared than 
history or biographers have taken notice of, just as, 
according to Sir Thomas Browne, more remarkable 
persons have been forgotten "than any that stand 
remembered in the known account of time." A few 
only, even of those conspicuous enough to attract the 
attention of the biographer, have had their cranial 
dimensions transmitted to us. In virtue of his bulk 
of brain, the late Mr. Southwick deserves to pass into 
history with Franklin, Webster and James T. Brady, 
among Americans; Addison, Fox and Sir James 
Simpson, among Englishmen ; Baron Cuvier, Mira- 
beau and Napoleon the First, among Frenchmen ; 
Dr. Chalmers, among Scotchmen ; Pope Leo the

LuCRETiA SOUTHWICK, when about twelve years 
of age, and a short time previous to the battle of 
Plattsburgh, when the British were seizing men, teams, 
and provisions, in Mooers, and its vicinity, her father 
being warned of the danger of remaining at his house, 
he with his sons drove the cattle into the depths of 
a forest, fitted up booths, and stored hay, grain, and 



other valuables, coming home nights to look after the 
house and procure cooked food ; Lucretia was left in 
charge of the house, her mother being on a visit to 
her old home in Connecticut, and her older sister 
being also absent. The expected British soon arrived, 
who ransacked the house and catechised her, wishing 
to know about her father and brothers, she managed 
to evade their questions and to excite their surprise 
by her smart answers. They at length took their de- 
parture, and in leaving the house helped themselves 
to some plums, and while doing so remarked to her 
that they were going down to take Plattsburgh, she 
replied that they probably would have to take large 
quantities of plum sauce in doing so. They were 
somewhat profuse in their profane replies, and on 
reaching Plattsburgh they could not capture it, and 
found it was easier to steal plums than to capture

Warham Southwick had an eventful life, which 
would be very interesting to relate had we all the par- 
ticulars, as it is we can only give sketches. 

After living many years at Kinderhook, 111., where 
he was a farmer and stock raiser, he moved to Ross- 
ville, Iowa, and then to Pleasant Valley (same state), 
where he carried on trade with the Indians in the 
most friendly and prosperous manner. 

An incident is related of his wife putting a dishpan 
full of Mexican dollars into the stove oven to secure 
it from the pilfering Indians, as she was going out for 
a little while. The next morning she forgot to re- 
move it until the fire had been built some time ; though 
not injured they were very hot. 

After trading in this way a few years, or until 1854, 
they, in company with many others, emigrated by the 
Freemont overland route to California, taking with 
them a large stock of cattle, and a large body guard, 
mounted and sufficiently armed for protection. They 
were well furnished with emigrant wagons, and every- 
thing necessary for the journey. His wife has been 
heard to say it was one of the most enjoyable she 
ever undertook.* 

* Her father with his wife and sons had undertaken the same 
journey the year before, and when near Utah, were attacked by 
the so-called Indians, the father killed and the cattle taken from 
them. The family remained at Utah, and putting the affair into a 
lawyer's hands, he recovered satisfaction for the property. 


Warham's death seemed almost a tragedy. He 
was returning from a political meeting in California, 
and with him were riding two men of opposing poli- 
tics. (VVarham inherited the plain outspoken char- 
acteristic of the Southwicks.) They were noticed to 
be warmly engaged in discussing their favorite topics. 
The termination of it was, he was found lying beside 
the road in an unconscious state, his head badly 
bruised, while his team had run away. He lived two 
days apparently unconscious, except at intervals. 
During one of these, not being able to speak, he made 
signs that he had been unfairly treated.* His widow, 
one son and two daughters, still live in Soquel, Cali-

N.Y. Here I made my home for nine years. In 
these years I had a varied life ; I travelled in New- 
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, In- 
diana and Michigan. When I was 20, I commenced 
teaching school; at 21, I cast my first vote for Harri- 
son and took quite an interest in politics for a while. 
I then began to think of a profession, and turned my 
attention to medicine. I studied and attended college 
at Cincinnati, Ohio; graduated in 1846 and came to 
Centerville, St. Joseph Co., Mich., and commenced 
practicing. In 1848, married. In 1849, I moved to 
Mendon, same county. In 1852, I crossed the plains 
to California, and in 1854 returned home, via Isthmus 
and New York. (I still reside in Mendon, (1880), 
and my children with me). Since that time I have 
been engaged principall}' in farming. I abandoned 
the practice of medicine outside of my own famil\-. 
when I returned from California.

cipal drug establishments in the city. In a very 
short time he became proprietor of the establishment ; 
and by investigating and experimenting he produced 
several medicines which had a great sale and brought 
him great wealth. His laboratory for compounding 
medicines gave employment to about three hundred 
persons. As his wealth increased, he gave attention 
to manufacturing industries. He also became a large 
real estate owner in New York, Boston, Chicago. 
Philadelphia and many other cities of the Union. 
He was a man of remarkable energies, and his too 
close application to business was undoubtedly the 
the cause of his mental faculties becoming overthrown. 
He died July 3, 1878. leaving an estate valued at 
several millions.

Henry C. Southwick, for many years of the boot 
and shoe firm of Benedict, Hall & Co.. New York, 



died in Cincinnati, Ohio, a^ed 49 years. The deceased 
came to New York when he was sixteen years old, 
and when he attained his majority, w^as made a mem- 
ber of the above firm. Short!}' before the war his 
health failed and he made a trip to Europe, from 
which he returned greatly improved, and at once 
assumed a leading position in carrying on the large 
transactions of the firm of which he was a member, 
and which, during the war, assumed extraordinary 
proportions. He enjoyed a high degree of popularity 
and his large operations, embracing the filling of 
many heavy government contracts, were always 
marked by that quickness of perception and prompt- 
ness in deciding, which are such essential qualities of 
a successful merchant. He retired from the shoe 
business about eight years ago, but has been since 
that time, connected with Horace B. Claflin & Co., 
in the dry goods trade. He is a nephew of Mr. 
Claflin, and a brother of John C. Southwick, of the 
New York Swamp, the centre of the hide and leather 
business of New York city.

John Claflin South wick, son of Royal and 
Direxa (Claflin) Southwick, was born in Lowell, Mass., 
Dec. 2, 1835. Having finished his education he went 
as clerk with Messrs. Young & Schultz, hide and 
leather dealers, corner of Ferry and Cliff streets, New- 
York city, Feb. 23, 1856. He was a clerk with them 
for four years, and by his close application to their 
business and learning to be a salesman, was admitted 
a partner with the said firm in i860. Their business 
soon becoming too large for the store they then oc- 
cupied, Messrs. Young & Schultz built a ver}' large 
store on Cliff street, running through to Franklin 
Square. Owing to the death of the senior partner, 
Edmund M. Young, Esq., who died Oct. 8, 1864, the 
firm then became Schultz, Southwick & Co. ; they soon 
after mov^ed their business to No. 65 Clifi" street, and 
in 1879. their business having grown very large. Jack- 
son S. Shultz, Esq., the senior partner, built a very 
capacious store at the north end of Cliff street, which 
connected with their hide house, where they moved 
in the fall of 1879, being Nos. 1 09, ill and 113 Clifif 
street. The firm have always maintained a just repu- 
tation for a high order of business integrity, and with 
a large capital have an unlimited credit in merchan- 
dise or money. 

John C. Southwick by his active mind and careful 
scrutiny in buying and selling, and by his close atten- 
tion to the business has relieved Mr. Schultz from the 
care of business, by which he has been able to give 
much time to many things outside of his business. 
In 1873 Mr. Schultz went to Vienna as commissioner 


to the World's Fair, leaving their very large business 
of buying and selling and all their heavy financial 
business with said Southwick to attend to, he then 
being only in his thirty-eighth year, which he very 
successfully managed, to the great satisfaction of his 
partner Mr. Schultz.

years practicing and teaching music. 

Maria A. Southwick, second child of Hosea and 
Maria D. (Smith) Southwick, was born Feb. 17, 1821, 
and married Jorantham Ober Aug. 3, 1841. She is 
assistant compiler of the records of the descendants 
of Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick. Maria's 
mother's father, Asahel Smith, was an engineer and 
surveyor and a brother of judge Chauncy Smith, of 
Benson, Vt. She was sister of the late Rev. Henry 
H. Smith of the Methodist Episcopal Conference. 

Her father Hosea, and mother, Maria D., moved in 
the spring of 18 19 on a new farm, with only a log 
house and barn, in the midst of a forest ; but the land 




was soon cleared and the wood reduced to potash, 
one of the staple products of the country at that 
time, and teamed with oxen to Montreal to market. 
Although deprived of many pleasing" associations, 
they were able to have all the necessities of life. 
It was no uncommon thing to hear the howling of 
wolves at night, which would be kept at bay by throw- 
ing firebrands at them. The making of maple sugar 
was an important industry in the spring, when the 
maple sap would run. After eight years of pioneer 
life they purchased and moved on another farm which 
was nearer church but not so near school, where the}- 
stayed two years, and in the spring of 1 829 they moved 
to Champlain, P. O. address, Perrys Mills, being a 
pleasant change to village life. In 1832 her father died 
from cholera, which was very rapidly fatal ; he had 
intervals of consciousness and was resigned to depart 
this life. Twenty-five years after, her mother died 
from a cancer or perhaps poison, which was used out- 
wardly, being absorbed by the blood ; she died at 
Mooers, at the house of her youngest daughter, Mrs. 
Almira H. Angell. May 16. 1857.

scarcely anything but a wilderness. They were eight 
days on the road, as they travelled by carriage, there 
being no better mode of conveyance at that time ; 
now it takes nine hours to go the same distance. It 
was very cold, through a lonely country, and many 
times she had to walk to keep warm ; so that with all 
her resolution, she became very homesick, and as 
they passed through Franconia Notch, they stopped 
at the basin, to see the wonders of nature ; it looked 
so quiet and restful, that she was tempted to jump in 
and end all her fatigue, but she was spared by the 


hand of the Lord, to be a strong help to her luisband 
and childr(Mi. When they arrived at Dalton, their 
house wa^ not finished ; just one acre of land cleared, 
where the house stood, the rest all woods, so they had 
to begin life in earnest. She did all her own work; 
made all their own cloth ; carding, spinning, and 
weaving both wool and flax for the famil\- ; braiding- 
straw, both coarse and fine; making both hats and 
bonnets for ladies and gentlemen, besides lending a 
hand at work on the farm when it seemed necessary. 

She had eight children, Mary, George, Oscar. 
Susan, Ira, Amelia and a pair of twins, which died 
young, fler husband died Feb. 2"], 1844. of erysip- 
elas, being sick only two days, leaving her with sev- 
eral small children to care for, which she did well. 
Two of them were taken so sick the da\- her husband 
died, with cr) sipelas, that their lives were despaired 
of, but they were spared, with all the others, to be a 
comfort and help to her in her years of helplessness. 
In May, 1845, •'^^le was thrown from her carriage and 
broke her right arm, at the wrist, so that the bone 
protruded through the flesh. She had to wear splints 
on it for seventeen weeks. In the \-ear 1847 she was 
attacked with rheumatism, wdiich never leit her. 
Most of the time she was a great sufi"erer, many of 
her joints grew out of joint, and bone formed in their 
sockets, so that for several years she was very help- 
less, but she bore her suff"erings with great patience, 
doing light work to pass the time away, when it 
seemed impossible for her to do anvthing. 

Sept. 3, 1849, she was again thrown from a car- 


riage, at nearly tlie same place as before, and so much 
injured that she was taken up for dead, her head 
striking on a rock. She lay unconscious for several 
days, and when she came to herself her eyes were 
crossed and never turned back again. She used to 
say in telling of it in after years, that her head split 
the rock. 

The 14th of April, 1857, at midnight, a cold rainy 
night, they discovered their house on fire, and so badly 
burned, that the family had barely time to escape 
in their night-clothes, which was all they saved from 
the house; Mrs. Wallace being at that time so lame 
that she could not get oft' the bed alone, her son Ira 
had just time to carry her out. It rained at the time 
and the snow and slosh was ankle deep. They were 
obliged to remain out in it for several hours, as all 
their buildings were burned, and neighbors quite a 
distance off. With the kind assistance of neighbors 
they soon had another house erected on the same 
spot, living in it as soon as it was boarded up, and 
finishing it as they could, but she did not complain. 
She died Jan. 9, 1877, nearly 74 years old, glad to 
be free from the sufferings and trials of this life, and 
rejoicing in the blessed hope of immortality beyond 
the grave. 

Her son Ira M. Wallace, was a soldier in the late 
rebellion. He enlisted April 22, 1861, for three 
months, and reenlisted June i, 1861, in the 2d N. H. 
Vol., Col. Maston, Co. F., Capt. Snow, for three years. 
He was in the first battle of Bull Run, fought July 2 i , 
1861 , the battle of Williamsburg ; seige of Yorktown ; 


battle of Fair Oaks ; Seven Pines ; Balls Church ; both 
battles of Melvin Hills ; and lost his right arm, Aug. 
29, 1862, at the second battle of Bull Run. His arm 
was a great loss to him, and he says " I feel my loss 
very much, and often, but never regretted that I en- 
listed." He now lives in Kansas, where I think he 
took up a soldiers claim.

Orin Frederick Southwick, second son of Orin 
and Hannah (Stone), was born in Mooers, Clinton 
Co., N. Y., Oct. 31, 1 83 1. He remained with his 
parents till he was twenty-one, helping to clear up and 
develop the Southwick homestead. His education 
was obtained in the common school, Champlain Acad- 
emy, and Fort Edward Collegiate Institute. He 
taught several terms of school in Mooers and Cham- 
plain, and was a very successful teacher. He was a 
member of the first Teacher's Institute held in Clinton 
Co., and assisted in organziing the first Teacher's Asso- 
ciation of Clinton Co., being one of the committee on 

His first speculation on an extensive scale was in 
the purchase of corn in Ogdensburgh, in car-load lots, 
shipped to Centerville, then with teams to the old 
grist mill of A. J. C. Blackman, where it was ground 
and sold. 

On Monday, May 9, 1859, he left Mooers, home 
and friends, and went West, spending a few weeks 
with Milton Southwick and family in Wisconsin, and 
here received his first introduction to western customs 
and western life. Continuing his journey west, he 
crossed the Mississippi for the first time at Prairie 
Duchine, thence by stage into Iowa, remaining a few 
weeks at Burr Oak, a pleasant village in the southern 


part of the state, where he met with several famiHes 
formerly from Mooers and Champlain. While here 
he engaged to teach the Burr Oak Institute, com- 
mencing in September. After spending nearly two 
weeks at this place, he loaded a team with flour, meal 
and smoked hams, and started across a new country 
to Freeborn, Minn., this being his first introduction 
to pioneer life. As the settlements were far between, 
he had to camp out nights, either sleeping on the 
ground or on his load ; as there were no bridges, he 
had to ford streams and sloughs, often having to unload 
and carry his load over on his back, with the help of 
the teamster. After a tiresome journey with an ox 
team through a new country, quite early in the morn- 
ing of June 8th he arrived at Freeborn, where he 
received a joyful reception from his brother David 
and cousins Joel and May Southwick, who were 
keeping house. Here he sold his flour for $6.00 a 
hundred pounds, and meal for $4.00. Remaining here 
during the summer, he preempted 160 acres of land, 
going to the U. S. land office at Chatfield, 85 miles, 
for that purpose, but went with two ox teams and 
two wagons, taking Joel Southwick with him, and 
loading back with corn meal ; he thus continued his 
-trade in provisions, which paying a liberal profit, 
was also entered into by his brother David Southwick, 
which might be called the commencement of the 
extensive mercantile firm of Southwick Brothers. 

On the 4th of July, 1859, he delivered the Fourth 
of July oration in Freeborn, which was listened to by 
a large gathering of pioneers. About the last of 


August he left Freeborn and journeyed to Burr Oak, 
Iowa, to fulfil his engagement to teach the Burr Oak 
Institute. His stay in the west had already brought 
upon him the great western malady, the fever and 
acfue, which continued for several months at times ; 
but disregarding the chills and shakes, on the 19th 
day of September he commenced his first term of 
school in Burr Oak, and remained here till the spring 
of 1 86 1, having taught five terms of school with good 
success. During vacation, in the autumn of i860, 
he was employed by the State Superintendent to con- 
duct and teach the first Teacher's Institute in Winnes- 
heik County, held at Decorah, for which he received 
at the rate of $78 per month. In the spring of 1861 
the mercantile business established two years before 
at Freeborn, which had been under the management 
of David Southwick, had so increased that it needed 
both of these brothers, hence Frederick resigned his 
position as principal of the Burr Oak Institute, con- 
trary to the wishes of the trustees and the school, 
and returned to Freeborn, Minnesota, by an indirect 
line of stages, reaching Freeborn May 3. 

The war had commenced, and the financial crisis 
was upon the country. The Banks of Illinois and 
Wisconsin had many of them failed and the notes of 
others were at a great discount, so much that out of 
about $700 in bank bills the firm of Southwick Broth- 
ers could raise but about $400 to purchase a spring 
stock of goods ; but having already established a 
credit, they were able to buy all the goods needed 
for their trade. Trade continued to increase, and 


immigration continued to flow into the country. No 
railroads being yet built in the state of Minnesota, 
all goods had to be hauled from the Mississippi River; 
the nearest point being Hastings, 90 miles from Free- 
born. Soutliwick Brothers employed several teams 
to draw wheat, hides, etc., to Hastings and load back 
with goods ; paying 25 cents per bushel for drawing 
wheat, and 50 cents per 100 pounds for drawing goods 
back. It took horse teams five to six days to make 
the trip, and ox teams seven to eight. Business con- 
tinued, trade increased and money accumulated, 

Orin Southwick having a knowledge of surveying, 
spent part of his time surveying and plotting roads, 
and surveying and subdividing timber lots. He 
served one term as superintendent of schools of Free- 
born Co., which occupied part of his time, the rest 
was spent in the store, either behind the counter or 
upon his books in the office, except such time as he 
was in the market purchasing goods. He made 
several visits to his native home. The Winnebago 
Indians' reservation being near Freeborn, Southwick 
Brothers received a share of their patronage, exchange 
ing goods with them for furs, feathers, etc, and by 
fair dealing gained their confidence, friendship and 
trade; but after the Sioux outbreak of 1862 the 
Winnebago Indians were removed west, and thus 
ended this branch of trade. 

In 1867 Orin Southwick was married, and with his 
wife made a tour through the western, middle and 
eastern states, visiting O. C. Merrill and family in 
Michigan City, Ind., and Erastus and David South- 


wick and families in Ohio, besides spending a few- 
weeks at his father's, in Mooers, and visiting with 
friends in Mooers, Champlain, Chazy, Beekmantown 
and Schuyler's Falls, also visiting with friends in Mas- 
sachusetts and New York city. 

The Southern Minnesota Railroad passed about 
seven miles south of Freeborn, building up the towns 
of Alden and Wells, thus Freeborn being left away 
from the railroad it became a dull town, and to-day 
Freeborn is a village of the past, though once a beau- 
tiful thriving business town resting on the north bank 
of the beautiful inland lake of Freeborn, a spot yet 
destined in the future to be the resort of lovers of 
beautiful scenery and delightful lake breezes. 

Freeborn being left off the railroad line, Southwick 
Brothers built a large store at Wells, and took in with 
them two young men, Huntley and Terhune, and 
opened their extensive store at Wells, June 6, 1870. 
The future seemed bright, and business promised 
good ; but David Southwick, after a brief illness of 
eleven days, died in September of the same year and 
left the business of Wells and Freeborn in the hands 
of O. F. Southwick, who shortly after sold the stock 
of goods at Freeborn to his younger brothers, Titus 
and Pliny. In the spring of 1871 he bought out 
Terhune's interest in the Wells store, and the next 
spring, 1872, bought out Huntley's interest and has 
since owned and run the business alone, and is now 
doing an extensive mercantile business ; besides farm- 
ing on an extensive scale, owning 1440 acres of rich 
prairie land. 


O. F. Southvvick is a large robust man, now weigh- 
ing 262 pounds, and enjoying life. He is a radical 
temperance man, having served two terms as mayor 
of the city of Wells, elected by the temperance party. 
He is connected with the M. E. Church of Wells and 
is superintendent of the Sunday School.

Mr. David Southwick died at Wells, Minn., 
Thursday, Sept. 8, 1870, at one A,M,, of bilious fever, 
aged thirty-three years. He was one of our oldest 
and best citizens. Coming to this section of the 
State at twenty years of age, thirteen years ago, he 
settled at Freeborn, in Freeborn County, where he 
engaged in trade. Two years later, his brother, 
Frederick, came west and connected himself with him. 
They remained at Freeborn, building up a handsome 
village as well as an extensive business until this spring, 
when David connected with him two young men from 
the East, Messrs. Huntley and Terhune, and put in a 
large retail establishment at Wells. 

Two weeks ago Mr. Southwick was in the best of 
health and exuberant spirits. To-day he is lifeless, 
his wife mourns the loss of a husband, his child a 
father, and the community in which he lived, one of 
its best citizens. The bereaved family have the heart- 
felt sympathy of the entire community. About two 
years since, we announced his marriage in TJic Stand- 


ard, and his union, we believe, proved a very happy 
one. It seems therefore, a hard decree of fate that 
his young wife and child should be called, thus early, 
to mourn his loss. — The Stajidard, Wells, Minn. 

Lines addressed to Mrs. Fanny Southwick on the 
death of her husband, Mr. David Southwick, who 
died Sept. 8, 1870, aged thirty-three years: 

Did I dream as I counted my jewels o'er 

That mj lintel was marked like a Jewish door.' 

That my ear was sealed to the midnight cry 

As the angel of Death was passing by.'' — 

A guest unbidden, he stood at my side, 

And the lov'd of my household drooped and died. 

That dear lov'd one in his morning dew, 

His skeleton fingers chilled him through; 

Like a snow drift he lay so passing fair, 

I had worshipped my idol even there, 

And rashly queried the Giver — why 

He willed that my cherished gift should die! 

No upward glance in the deepening gloom 

For my heart went down to the dreary tomb, 

They spoke of my lov'd in a happier sphere. 

But their solace fell on a listless ear — 

For I knew full well in my utter woe 

I had held the fluttering wing below; 

And I wildly mourned as the seraph band 

Were bearing him on to the Glory land. 

Oh, tempted and tried! — yet recreant still, 

For I bow'd me not to Thy Sovereign will. 

And " by many stripes must my healing be " 

Ere a chastened heart I can bring to Thee. 

The chalice of bitterness drank — Oh, God! 

With a broken spirit I kiss the rod ; 

For I think of the jewel yet in store 

And of Justice stern, that may ask for more. 



Then I bovv'd,m_y spirit and felt how vain, 
Mj tears could not call him to life again : 
Like David of old — I will cheer me now, 
I will throw the sackcloth off my brow. 
For faith springs up and a hope is given 
The loved and lost will be met in heaven. 
Where I soon may rest from my will and care, 
When my Heavenly Father calls me there. 
" As it seemeth good to the Holy One 
Be it life or death, may His will be done." 


Some weeks ago we noticed the death of David 
Southwick, one of our most esteemed citizens. A 
copy of our paper strayed way down to Virginia, 
where the War King made such sad desolation during 
the war. Our remarks met the eye of Mrs. Penn, a 
lady who in that dark time, though ill-treated, robbed 
of home, property and friends, and wrecked in health, 
dared to remain, hoped on, looking ever to Him above 
for comfort. She at once addressed to Mrs. South- 
wick the above lines, which are regarded by her 
friends as singularly apt as well as stored with beauti- 
ful thought. — The Standard, Wells, Minn. 

In May, 1857, David H. Southwick, with a small 
capital, started for the west, made his way to Chicago 
and then to Illinois and Wisconsin, from thence he 
started for Minnesota, arriving at Prairie Duchene on 
the Mississippi, he took passage on a steamer and 
went up the river nearly 200 miles to Redwing where 
he disembarked, and alone with his traveling sack he 
walked over an unsettled prairie, about 100 miles, to 


Freeborn, a small settlement on the north shore of 
the beautiful lake bearing the same name. Here he 
made his home and soon engaged in trade with the 
Indians, buying and selling furs, blankets, etc. Two 
years later he was joined by his brother Orin F. 
They united interests and enlarged the business and 
were known by the name of Southwick Brothers, and 
thus continued until his death. The brothers built 
up an extensive trade and accumulated money, each 
working for the interest of the firm without any divi- 
sion of property or any individual account. David 
filled many places of trust, had a large circle of friends 
and was blessed with superior traits of character. 
Being a great reader his mind was richly stored with 
historical anecdotes, he was well versed in history, 
and especially in the general and current news of the 
day. He died Sept. 8, 1870, leaving an untarnished 


Pliny Fitch SouTHWICK^ (Orin^ Daniel*, Sam- 
uer, David*, SamueP, John*, Lawrence'), son of Orin 
and Hannah (Stone), born Sept. 7, 1850, in Mooers ; 
married, Sept. 1 1, 1878, in Harrisonburg, Va., Cornelia 
Wilson Tabb, daughter of George Washington and 
Mary Creighton (Wilson) Tabb, of Virginia, Jefferson 
Co., born March 13, 1850, in Berkley Co., Virginia, 
died April 13, 1880, of peritonitis, George Washing- 
ton Tabb was one of the jurymen who signed the death 
warrant of John Brown. One child: 
3620. Cassandra Tabb^, born April 2, 1880, died when 4 days old. 


Pliny Fitch Southwick went to Northampton in 
1866, at the age of 16, and learned the dry goods 
business, remained there till 1870, then went into 
business in Freeborn, Minn., with T. A. Southwick; 
spent two months on the frontier, and then returned to 
Northampton, Mass., where he became a partner in 
the store where he learned his business. He afterwards 
sold his interest and became a commercial traveller 
for a New York importing house. Was in the dry 
goods business (1880) in Harrisonburg, Va. 

Mrs. Cornelia Wilson (Tabb) Southwick was 
born in Berkley Co., W.Va., near Martinsburg, March 
13, 1850. She purchased another home at Fair View, 
Jefferson Co., on the Opeaquon Creek, near Charles- 
town, where her family moved a year later, the 
place rendered historical by John Brown's trial, and 
where her father, George Washington Tabb, served in 
this trial and wrote his verdict; also a noted place of 
numerous conflicts during our late civil war. She was 
educated by private teachers until during the war, 
when she completed her education at Ann Smith 
Academy at Lexington, Va. Remaining at home 
until her family moved to Harrisonburg, where she 
had numerous opportunities of travel and gratifying 
her taste for literature, she married Pliny F. Southwick 
Sept. II, 1878, but died April 13, 1880, having 
attained the type of a true and lovely woman at an 
early age.

burg Vifginian, of the marriage in this place of Mr. 
Pliny F. Southvvick and Miss Cornelia W. Tabb, 
youngest daughter of our worthy townsman, G. W. 
Tabb, Esq., will be read with much interest by the 
many friends of both parties in Harrisonburg: 

Harrisonburg, Va., Sept. 15, 1878. 
Dea r Virgin ia n : 

Dear C. — When I arrived in Harrisonburg two 
months ago " a stranger in a strange land," I little 
imagined the charming affaire de r^j^v/r whose progress 
I was to watch, until it terminated in an Old Virginia 

I apply this epithet to the offering so recently 
made to Hymen, because all connected with it was 
so utterly different from the present marriage a la 
mode ; and because its quiet, refined modesty reminded 
me of the days when the marriage rite was regarded 
as the public seal to a compact, considered solemn 
and binding from the first moment of its formation 
— not merely an occasion of gorgeous displa}-, much 
gossip and sometimes, even scandal. 

Yet this quiet, little marriage was attended by such 
romantic circumstances, that you must let me repeat 
them to you : 

The bride, Miss. C. T., was the youngest daughter 
of Mr. G. W. T., formerly of Jefferson county, and 
whose family are too well known throughout Virginia, 
to require further comment, except that he had been 
a prominent juryman at the John Brown trial. 


During the late war, this fact appeared to increase 
the animosity extended to him and his family, by the 
Federal soldiers — indeed, so great were the hard- 
ships endured by this family, that it was quite natural 
their recollections of "the Yankees" should not be 
the most agreeable imaginable. But they had prom- 
ised to become loyal subjects to tlie United States 
Government, and they would certainly be true to 
their word ; so last winter, when Mrs. T. found it 
necessary to receive boarders into her family, she 
accepted the application of a gentleman, actually 
born in New York, and partly bred in New England. 
His very complexion, fair and ruddy, proved him a 
true son of the North : perhaps, like many other 
Americans, he is descended from those old Northmen, 
the Danes, who so frequently disturbed the peace of 
the ancient Britons. At all events, he was now about 
to imitate the example of the Danes by invading 
this happy home. 

Personally there was no objection to this gentleman, 
still Mrs. T.'s children could not give him a very 
cordial welcome, and Miss C. (whose warm Southern 
heart caused her to feel particularly belligerent to- 
wards him) privately resolved to treat him with the 
coldest civility, holding only such intercourse with 
him as was required by common courtesy. Little 
did Miss C. imagine that, through her instumentality, 
he was to become what Susan Nipper would term 
"a permanency," and not " a temporary." However, 
by the time Spring had arrived, it was discovered 
that not only had this "young man's fancies," but 


also those of this patriotic young maiden, had very 
seriously turned to "thoughts of love." 

Of course everybody now knows the sequel, but 
during that wonderful period of "engagement," every- 
thing was kept delightfully quiet. Even the neigh- 
bors had to forego the pleasure of discussing the 
bride's trousseau, every article of which was never- 
theless, thoroughly comuic il faiit. 

The usual white veil and orange blossoms were 
replaced by a stylish traveling costume, more appro- 
priate for seven o'clock in the morning, at which hour 
Miss L. entered the parlor on Mr. S.'s arm, looking 
as if only a true Northerner could make her happy, 
so entirely does love triumph over even our national 
prejudices. But, one word about the parlor. It was 
literally a mass of lovely flowers, and from the centre 
depended the grand marriage bell, formed of white 
flowers and geranium leaves; that wonderful bell, 
which would, so soon, 

" Ring out a slowly djing cause, 

And ancient forms of party strife, 
Ring in the noble modes of life. 
With sweeter manners, purer laws.'" 

And in contrast to the white flowers, there might 
be seen in the distance a background of dusky faces 
and woolly heads, belonging to those dear old " aunts" 
and " uncles," who are often the most truly loved 
relatives of a Southern child. 

Then followed the parental blessing, the friendly 
congratulations, the hurried farewell, and the next 
moment two happy souls were whirling up the Shen- 


andoah Valley. I imagine they were rather oblivi- 
ous to its beautiful scenery, as on such occasions, 
each soul is supposed to be absorbed with gratitude 
at having found its "better half." Hoping you may 
enjoy the report of this little marriage occasion as 
much as I did the reality, and with many thanks for 
the patience extended to this long letter, I am yours 
sincerely, L. W. W. 

Eighteen months after the above we have the 
following from Mr. Pliny F. Southwick's own pen : 

April 23, 1880. 
My Dear Mother and Friends at home: 

I have been trying to gather fortitude to write you 

Last week I wrote you of the death of our little 
one only four days old. But now I must tell you 
that Cornelia too is dead. 

They lie side by side in the cold and silent grave 
* * * She exhorted friencis to meet her in heaven, 
then bade us a triumphant adieu, saying, "The angel 
troop are waiting."

If any should find themselves neglected, or left out entirely, 
in this volume, they will oblige by corresponding with us in re- 
gard to the same, and by sending whatever may have been 
omitted, in order that in our next edition, they may be remem- 
bered and included. 

Our family tree is so large, and its branches so numerous, that 
it is possible we may not have gathered all into this work.
